Goodbye Grandpa Nish

I know it has been forever since my last post- and I am sorry! It has been a crazy summer, and my ever so slow computer has not helped! I wanted to devote a special post to yy Grandpa Nish who passed away on July 29th (Marci's Birthday) he was 97 years old. What a great man he was! I am so blessed to have gotten to have him as part of my life for so long- he was such a great grandpa! I am so happy that Cale got to meet him- these pictures were taken last year, right after Cale was born, and I am so glad we took the time to take them- I will always cherish them!

Before I got pregnant with Cale, I asked my Grandpa to give me a blessing to help us become parents. He said that he "would be honored to!" He couldn't stand, so he sat down in his chair, I was on the floor, and he blessed me that "the desires of my heart would be granted." Such powerful words, that at the time, I had no idea of how important they would be! What a blessing it is to have such a great heritage of faith!

I am so glad I have the knowledge that I will see him again, and that I know he is in such a better place! What I would have given to have been there when he saw my Grandma again! They loved each other so much! I am so happy to have had the chance to have him as my Grandpa! Sweet Dreams Grandpa! We'll see you again, soon! We love you!

It is hard to loose those we love, but it sounds like you have many wonderful memories with him and that he lived a long life. I hope you are doing well and I am sure little Cale is growing like a weed.
