Remebering Gpa ...
In February, Gpa (Sarah's Great-Grandpa) was diagnosed with brain cancer. In just a short month after his diagnosis, he went home to be with his Lord and Savior. It was so unexpected and it took him so fast that we are all still in shock. As soon as he was diagnosed, he was released from the hospital and was able to be in his own home surrounded by friends and family. All of his children were able to visit him before he passed away and almost all of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We were blessed to have that month to say our goodbye's. We all miss him terribly. (Eli is having an especially hard time because he loved his Gpa so much and still looks for him everytime we go to Uma and Grandpa's house).
