My Grampa

My heart is heavy tonight. Right now, I wish I were a little closer to my grandparents. I grew up in South Florida, where they still live. My grampa is in the hospital...I guess in a coma. He's had a lot of health challenges, but, I still was not prepared for this. There is still a chance of him waking up, but, it's not looking like that will happen. I wish I could be close to my gramma. He is her life (after God) and I know that when he is gone, she won't know what to do with herself. They are both so special and precious to me. When I was little I stayed with them a lot. They took me to church and facilitated so many great experiences for me. God used them in my life in a huge way. I was protected from a lot because of them. I was shown and taught about the love of God at a young age because of them. My grampa is the funniest person I know. He's got a rough, sometimes crude way about him...but, people love him. I took the boys down to FL this spring and I'm so glad they got to get to know him a little better. Even though I know he was very uncomfortable and not able to get around like he used to, he kept talking about Jesus. I know that when the day comes, he will be so much happier, but I will miss him so much.
