Leavin’ On A Jet Plane

Just wish I didn’t hate the jet plane so much.

My family has received some sad news.  My grandfather, who has lived a long and full life, and who had been suffering with the aftereffects of a stroke, passed away yesterday.  My family is gathering in Virginia, and I’m flying out this afternoon to be with them. 

I’ll be back on Monday.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. I just spoke with my Grandaddy on the phone yesterday – he kept teasingly (sorta) reminding me how old he is and how he’s not going to be around much longer and I told him to STOP SAYING THAT. When I got off the phone, I was kindof laughing but then I thought how hard it’s going to be to actually lose him. I’ll keep you and your family close in prayer this weekend. Have a safe trip.

  2. I’m sorry for your loss and will be saying a special prayer for you and your family.

    I’m so glad to hear that you are able to say that he lived a long and full life. I think that is a beautiful thing.

  3. I too am sorry for your family’s loss. I hope you have special moments with you family as you remember the long life he was gifted. Hope your travel goes well, too.

  4. I’m so very sorry. The only bright side is hopefully you’ll get to see some family members that you haven’t seen for a while and gain strength and comfort from that. I’m thankful he isn’t suffering any longer and is peacefully with the Big Man – hopefully in a big, ole, comfy recliner!
