The rough times are here. My grandfather passed away yesterday morning. From what I understand, it was peaceful: he fell asleep and didn’t wake up.
Thank you all for your prayers. We’re actually doing pretty well in coping with it. My grandmother put it best: he’s graduated to the next stage. Ironically, I think my mom’s having the toughest time (he was my paternal grandfather), but even she’s coping very well.
Things are still going to be crazy for the next few days: the burial will be Monday, the memorial service on Tuesday, and in the meantime lots of relatives will be coming in from out of town. And somehow Papa Raptor got stuck organizing and coordinating everything. So please pray for him: he’s under a lot of pressure right now.
Thanks again for all of your prayers and support,
