So this time, I have a legitimate excuse for my absence. July 6th, I got a late night call that my grandfather had had a massive heart attack.  An hour later, we found out that he had passed away.

I've mentioned my Grandaddy a few times on the blog and talked about how much fun we had celebrating his 80th party last year, here.

Grandaddy saying the dinner blessing at our wedding, and making me cry with his sweet words (and the fact that he was choked up)

Grandaddy and I at the beach, a place that we both really loved

Grandaddy meeting Mags for the first time*

*I just found out from my Grandmommy that Grandaddy was really upset that he wasn't there to meet Mags in the hospital.  He had been golfing and Grandmommy wasn't sure that he wanted to be interrupted, but he told her he had  He made sure that they came up the next week, because he couldn't wait to meet Maggie.  This is her sucking her thumb for the first time and after that she settled in for a nice long nap on Grandaddy.

My Grandaddy was so much more to me than the traditional grandfather and I am still really upset at his passing. So, that's all I'm going to say about that for now.  Still pretty raw....

On that note, I'm going to sign off for tonight.  But I hope to be back soon to talk about some lighter things....
Hope you're having a great day!
