The One With The Great Grandpa

We found out last month that Rick's grandpa had 4-8 weeks left to live because he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Pancreatic cancer is one of the fastest moving & often called the worst cancer to get.  After the news, we were sure to spend some time with Grandpa Brunson & say our goodbyes.  We told him of a special experience we had with my grandpa (who had passed away before I was born), where he helped Paige come to us.  We told Grandpa Brunson that it was his turn to help our next child come to us.  He gladly obliged.  :)

Robert O. Brunson passed away this morning.  We will no doubt miss this amazing man, but we look forward to seeing him again in the next life.

I'm sad that the rest of our kids will never get to meet him in this life, but I have confidence that he will keep his promise and help our kids back to us.  He was a very sweet & kind man.  He was often quiet, but when he did speak it was something that always made us smile.  He makes me want to be a better person & to be more like him.

Michelle, what a sweet post! I am sorry about your family's granpa's passing. Having the knowledge that families are forever, is a great start at healing. Love to you all!
