Tough Few Days

This past Friday my Dad's Dad, (and my papaw) Papaw Grant went home to be with the Lord. It seems unreal to be saying that and even more unreal to think of him not being at the farm. We were blessed to all be by his side as he took his last breath. I just wanted to share a few pictures.

Papaw and Mamaw at one of Wes's ballgames in Shreveport.

Papaw and Megan went to the dugout to give Wes some pointers.

After the game...

Papaw where he loved it the most, the farm...

Megan sitting in Papaw's lap this past Christmas. Meg's not dumb. She saw where all the presents went (Papaw's pile) and that is where she wanted to sit!!

Here is a picture I took from my phone. It is the afternoon of his visitation. Selph Hall was set-up for visitation with 3 tables full of pictures, memories, his hats, his Service Flag, his pipe/tobacco and lighter and a slideshow playing with Papaw's music playing in the background. As I left Selph Hall that afternoon to get ready for the visitation I told Dad is was hard to sum a life as full as Papaw's on 3 tables.
He will be greatly missed.
