Prayer Request

Please say a prayer for my family. My grandpa passed away yesterday under very tragic circumstances. Our family is heart-broken over the loss. My parents were still on their trip in California, so Jill and I had to call and tell them the news. That was probably one of the hardest things I have ever had to do (it is my dad's dad). Fortunately, they were already coming home today so they did not have to rearrange flights, etc. Please pray especially for my grandma. Her and my grandpa would have been married 55 years in October.
Thanks in advance for your prayers. It means the world to us.
This was from a couple of weekends ago when we went to visit him. It was the last time we saw them. I'm so glad I had my camera! :)

Hey Jen, I know how hard this is for you and your family. We want you guys to know we are praying for your family. All I canthink about is you and I sitting with your grandpa at church when we were little and him always bringing us a pack of gum and we ate like every piece. He was a great man. So sorry about your loss.

I am SO very sorry. I can imagine that was horrible to call your parents and tell them. I'm glad he got to meet Brody. That's a huge blessing.
I have lost both of my grandfathers in the last few years and I miss them dearly. I will be praying for your family and especially your grandmother - so hard to lose a husband of that many years.

I found your blog through Kelly's. I recently lost my grandpa as well. He and grandma would have been married 57 years in September. Please know that I'm praying for your family. God will grant you peace. It's never easy losing a loved one no matter how long they lived. My grandpa's death came as a shock to all of us. God is in control though, and I know that He knows what's best. Praying for you and your family.

Love and prayers,
Jennifer

Tori said...

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I know how hard it is to lose a granddad that you were close to. At least little Brody got to meet him. My little guy never met my granddad and I wish everyday that he did. You will cherish that forever.

Jennifer,
Goodness, I am so sorry to hear about your grandfather. It is so hard to loose someone, and especially when it is unexpected. Praying for your entire family during this time. But what a blessing for him to have known Brody for the time, and I know he will continue to watch over his little great-grandson from above!

Blessings and Love,
Krislyn

Katie said...

What beautiful pictures of your grandfather and Brody, Jennifer. Thank you for sharing them.

It was so encouraging to me to see you yesterday. Thank you for coming to Reese's memorial service.

I saw the title of your post and had to read. I love you! Praying for you and your family.

Jennifer, I am just now reading this about the loss of your Grandfather. I am so sorry. Looking at the picture of him and your grandmother, I can just tell he was a lovely man!! You are so blessed that he got to see his great-grandson before he passed away!

Thinking of your family and especially your Grandmother in the days ahead.

Mandi said...

Praying for your family...especially your grandma. She is very blessed to have such a sweet family to support her right now.

The picture of Brody with your grandpa is priceless.

darnold23 said...

I'm so sorry that I missed you while you were here. We will definitely miss your grandpa, but I want you to know that we will be keeping an eye on your grandmother -- not that she needs us to do so. Perhaps you do. Having Brody here was a great distraction for her. You'll have to bring him down more often. You should have our phone numbers. If not, let me know and I will send them to you....perhaps not on Facebook this time:)

Melissa said...

Sorry to hear about grandpa. I lost my grandpa last week. I know it hurts, but we have to remember that he is in a happy place and we will both get to see our grandpa some day soon. My prayers and thoughts go to your family and your parents during the difficult days. All the best! Melissa

Melissa said...

Actually I lost my grandpa on the same day. I hope that you and your family are doing okay.

Jessica said...

Oh, sweetie! I am so sorry! Your poor family must be heartbroken. What a wonderful family man he sounded to be!

Kiss that Brody!! He is an angel. : )

Love,
Jessica
