Broken Hearted...But happy too!

My daddy passed away on May 10th. It was so quick, we only knew about the cancer for a month. One thing I was glad of, his last day he was not in any pain and he went very peacefully. He had been hurting for 5 months and it was all we could do to watch him like that. When he passed he looked more at peace than he has looked in months. I can remember my daddy saying that he hoped at least one person would have been impacted by his life and they would get saved. Well the one person that we know of that got saved first was my sweet daughter. I know my daddy was smiling in heaven. She is so excited and we know daddy would be so proud of her. But you know what is so great for her is she knows now that if something was to happen to her that she will go to heaven and she will see her grandpa and her papa. We had a beautiful service yesterday morning in church and it just so happened when the church was singing Amazing Grace, which was the last song that was sung at my daddys funeral, that is when she said the Lord was dealing with her heart to be saved. One of her best friends was at the alter praying with her and that was just the sweetest thing, 2 children ages 9 and 8 at the alter praying together. I am so glad that Bryanna has such great christian friends and that they are so close. I couldn't have been any happier.

This was the last picture I got of them together. But it is such a wonderful feeling to know that we will see him again.
