last night my sweet grandaddy lost his battle with cancer. he was 91.
the entire family was there to say our goodbyes, tell him we love him, and even sing to him.
he was a wonderfully quiet man who loved his family, his horses and cows, old western movies, and most importantly his God.
i viewed him as a father figure since i didn't have a dad growing up and he was always the strong one, so to see him grow weaker and weaker with cancer was horrible and sad.
but we know he is just resting in God's memory and we will see him again.


  1. Oh Danielle, I am so sorry to hear about your grand-daddy!! I've known him since I was a little girl. He was always so kind and sweet. My heart and prayers go out to you and your entire family. Please give your mom and grand-momma a big hug from me!!

    Love you much!

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. Sounds like he was an amazing man. You were lucky to have had him in your life and I know you will miss him terribly. We'll be thinking about you in Oklahoma!!

  3. So sorry for your loss, Danielle! Your family and grandpa are in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. I'm so sorry about your Granddaddy. I just lost my Grandmother and even though we knew she wouldn't be here much longer, I was so shocked at how devistated I still was. They are such special people.

  5. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your granddaddy. I know he was like a father to you and you loved him dearly. Let your mom and grandmom know how sorry we are to hear about his passing. How comforting it was for your granddaddy to have y'all around to say your goodbyes and hear your singing... How comforting for us that we have the resurrection hope that will help to sustain us until you see him again!

  6. Thank you for such a loving post about our sweet Daddy and Granddaddy. He loved you with all his heart and he will awaken with the desire to hold you and all his loved ones. May we stay strong as he did all his life.

  7. So sorry for your loss. He sounds like a wonderful man.
    In Him~
