He Fought The Good Fight...

My granddaddy fought the good fight...
He finished the race...
He is completely healed...
And now he is resting in the arms of Jesus.

My granddaddy passed away this morning after a long and couragous battle with cancer. I am so thankful for the time I have had with him. Those moments are so precious to me. Right now we are taking comfort in the fact that he is completely and totally healed. There is no more suffering. No more pain. And we know we will see him again.


This was my granddaddy and me on my wedding day 6/16/01. I was so honored that he walked me down the aisle and presented me in marriage on that day.



Thank you to all of those who have called, emailed, texted, and prayed. It means so much! Please continue to pray for my family. Though we are comforted knowing that my granddaddy is completed healed and with Jesus, we are human and miss him.

thanks!

Jessica
