When I went to bed on Friday night, I figured Saturday morning I would be writing a post about the Zumba Party I helped teach Friday night. But instead, I have sad news to share. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember that about a month and a half ago, I wrote about my grandmother’s passing. And today it is with a heavy heart that I tell you that her husband, my beloved Grindaddy, went to join her in Heaven early yesterday morning.
Grindaddy and Memama
Grindaddy on his birthday in 2007… he was 89 years old.
My Grindaddy was such a special man. He was a courageous, strong-willed, generous musician who spent the last several years taking care of his sweet wife.
One of the best blessings is that he and my Memama were able to meet my daughter, Sadie, and get to know her over the past three years. Here he is with Sadie, when she was just two weeks old, and he was singing to her as he held her. What a special blessing. Isn’t life full of them?
It’s so hard to believe that he is not with us anymore, but I am so glad he and my Memama are together in a beautiful, wonderful, happy place. I’m sure I’ll be doing another post soon… with a few things that will always remind me of Grindaddy.
