Hard Goodbyes

Photo taken in 2009

This is Patrick's grandpa (James), Autumn, Cody, and Tommy (Patrick's cousin's son).  Patrick's grandpa passed away a little over a week ago.  We got the call on Sunday morning as we were getting ready for church. Although grandpa was 90 years old, it's still hard.  Church was hard that morning.  Telling Autumn was hard, which we waited until the next day.  It's hard being so far from home and not being able to be there for your loved ones.  When we said good-bye at the airport, we knew it could be the last time we saw some of our family.  We have some hope that he accepted Christ near the end.  I'm thankful there are no good-byes or tears in Heaven.
