Paw Paw

David's Paw Paw hasn't been well the past few weeks. David's mom has been traveling up to Lubbock to visit him a lot lately & we really knew this could be it for him.

Sadly, he passed on Saturday evening. David's mom was by his side thankfully.

We're all very sad that he's no longer with us, yet it's good to think of him no longer struggling or in pain. Could you please include David, his mom, & Granny in your prayers though? Granny herself is having some health difficulties lately too and this is still a difficult loss for our family. We'll miss dear Paw Paw greatly!  We're so glad Rylie & I were able to meet him last July on our trip to Lubbock!

The whole family all in one place last July!

Since Paw Paw's been sick, we've been telling Rylie "we need to pray for Paw Paw because he's sick." And she's been telling everybody "Paw Paw sick. Granny sick. Mimi with Paw Paw." Well, Rylie's friend Kendall was sick a few weeks ago at the same time Paw Paw first got ill too. So Rylie was also telling everybody "Kendall sick." Since Kendall got over her cold, Rylie's been saying "Kendall feel better." So when we tried to tell Rylie that Paw Paw's not with us anymore, she just said "But Kendall feel better!" It's been a little difficult explaining to a 2 year old about how some people get sick & go to heaven & some minor sicknesses get better. We dont want to scare her into thinking anybody who gets sick is going to die, so it's been hard telling her about all this.

I hope you all have had a great Memorial Day weekend though. We had quite a busy one with lots of pictures, so I'll work on posting them this week. Still no word yet on Paw Paw's funeral, but looks like David's birthday plans might be changing this weekend.
