My Papaw

It's been a long time since I last blogged. A lot has happened.

We went to China (random, but more on that in another post).

But most importantly....this man went to Heaven.

He's one of the greatest men in the world and I am so lucky to call him my Papaw.

He passed away on Sunday, May, 19 surrounded by my grandma, my brother, my dad, my stepmom and me after a tough battle with cancer.

It was quick and it was peaceful. One of the hardest things I have ever had the chance to witness, yet it was beautiful watching the love for this man and each other in the room as he took his final breaths.

No pain.

Just peaceful.

I ask for prayers for my fabulous Grandma. She and my Papaw have been married for 63 years. They got married when she was 16 and they rarely spent any time apart. They are the true definition of a love story and the type of marriage you strive to have for yourself. I ask for prayers of peace because I know it will be hard to be without him.

Even though we know he is no longer in pain and he is in Heaven, it is still hard to not have him around.

So I ask you, pretty please, to remember her in your prayers.

I have so much to share but it will have to wait for another day...right now I'm going to go and love on my husband and my sweet babies because life is short. And I don't want to miss a thing!
