Almost Wordless Wednesday: Before and After

When we drove up to my grandpa's house on Monday as soon as we got there he insisted that we take "before and after" pictures of him and baby Heman.  It was really cute how happy Heman was as soon as my sister set him down next to grandpa.  He just kept smiling - it was adorable. 

Heman is pointing like he is saying this is MY great-grandpa - isn't he great?

In this picture grandpa looks like a ghost but Heman is just so happy!

Then grandpa made us take a group shot.  We are all smiling here but it was a sad day.  I was smiling to keep from crying and I am sure that is the case for the rest of the family too.  Grandpa is a really great man and we don't like to see him like this.  He always said "Well, maybe I'll see you again." when we got off the phone or left but as we left on Monday he didn't say that - probably because he doesn't think he will see us again.  Sorry to be so sad today but this is what is going on around here.

So sorry that you and your family are going through this struggle. It's wonderful that you have these special moments with him. I'll keep your family in my prayers.

Keeping your family in prayer during this sad and hard time. Grandparents are special people in our lives and it is hard to see them in poor health.

We lost my husband's Uncle this week to cancer.
