This morning my nephew Denton sent out an email to a friend. We knew he was sending it what we did not know is the power of the words he would send out. They were so strong we wanted to share them with all of you.
I know some of you knew my grandpa, Gigi was in the hospital. I don’t know how to say this, but 7:45pm on July 25, 2008 was the last time I saw him alive. Some of you may have experienced this before, so you know how it feels. When he was in a coma yesterday, I made him a promise: that I would take care of my grandma. Today, I honored that promise. My Nana gave me my Gigi’s cap and told me to wear it today, and to take care of her. I wear the cap with pride. Above all, please pray for our family to be able to move on without him. He was the best grandpa anyone could ever have.
You guys are awesome,
As whale would say, “He is a boy beyond his years.” Please pray for our family as we celebrate the life of our father on the beach he loved tomorrow night at 7:00pm. We will then travel cross country for the 3 day drive home to McKinney. It will be the great family road trip my father always was looking for.
