I want to send my condolences to my good friend Stacey and her family. Her grandfather passed away this weekend.
I met him back in 1994 when I started dating Stacey's twin sister. Over the next 4 years I spent a number of dinners, afternoons, and brithday parties with him. He was always so kind, quick with a joke, and eager to chat. He always struck me as a man who understood the important things in life and I respected that.
I know his passing is a relief in many ways. The last couple of years have been tough for him, but even through that, it was clear he found ways to be happy and enjoy his family.
I am sorry for your family's loss Stacey. I am praying for all of you.
