Losing a piece of my heart


My sweet Granddaddy passed away Friday night.
My heart is happy knowing he is in heaven with family and friends,
but I'm sad because I want him here with me.
I wanted to be selfish and have him for myself a little longer.
He was one of my first playmates & never gave me reason to do anything but smile.
Not a day will go by that I don't think of him
& remember the words he spoke this night.
My eyes hurt from crying & my heart hurts because i feel like a piece is missing.
Mr. has been more than great & has even managed to make me laugh a bit...
which my funny Granddaddy would have wanted.
But when the laughter fades and I'm left with my sweet memories,
the loss sets in & the pain in my heart becomes more apparent.
My family could use your prayers right now...
so, if you have an extra minute(which I know is hard to come by), please send one up for us.

  11. Oh Lacey girl, I'm praying for you and for your family. I heard this quote once by Rose Kennedy, and I find it to be very true: 'It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.'

    I'm hoping peace for you, Lace.

  17. I am so sorry, Lacey. I, too, had a "Granddaddy" whom I loved with all my heart. Lung cancer took him away from us earlier than it should have. Yours sounds like he was a wonderful man. You and your family are in my prayers!
