Two years ago...

my father-in-law passed away. I can't believe it has been that long. Some days it seems like it has been a really long time. But, other days it seems like it was just yesterday. It is still weird to go over to the house and not see him sitting there in the living room. We took the opportunity to visit his grave yesterday. We stood around the headstone and just talked about things we remember about him. We gave the kids the opportunity to say if they were talking to Grandpa. Needless to say that there were plenty of tears flowing. I'm so sad that he is not here to watch my kids grow up. If there was one thing I knew for sure is that he loved my kids...more than life! He wanted to see them all the time...and he spoiled them! Always a trip to McDonald's or treats...not just one either! He would always call us and ask why we were keeping his grandkids away from him...and we were just there the day before! I'm thankful for the love he showed my children. He was a great man! I am thankful for the opportunity to have spent time with him.
Grandpa...we love you and miss you terribly!!!

Derek was so cute...he just kept sitting there and touching the headstone. So sweet!

The kids...missing their grandpa!
