Grandpa today

Well this is just a quick update on Grandpa today. I went to see grandpa today and my sister and my mom were both there to and Grandpa was in a great mood considering where he is. He would look at me and when I would say what grandpa he would look right at me and say "What!!" like a smart alick(sp?) We told him he had some cute nurses and he lowered and raised his eyebrows as if to say yeah i know LOL I know that he could have a different day tomorrow but I sure do hope he has many more days like today before he goes to see Grandma. I know what is going to happen sooner than we want but it is so nice to spend a little time with him and joke with him once again. He really is a wonderful man and is loved dearly. Oh yeah and we had the nicest lady come in who worked in the cafeteria and offer us some of the extra food she had on her cart (we said no nicely lol) and she was so sweet and said she went to the chapel earlier and prayed for my Grandpa and that was so kind of her. A total strager took her time to go to the chapel and pray for a man she knew nothing about. Much like all of you also praying for a man you don't personally know. i just wanted to say Thank you all so much for your kind prayers for a wonderful man who i hope you get to know through mine and my moms posts. Again THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.

I glad to hear your Grandpa is in good spirits today - I bet just seeing you, your siter and mom brightened his day a lot.

I'm not surprised the cafeteria cart lady did what she did. She probably "just" knows a decent man when she sees one.

As for the rest of us, even if we don't know your grandpa personally, we know he was a decent and honorable man, and we know one of his children, some of his grandchildren and many of his greatgrandchildren and we do what we can - thinking and praying for the best for all of you.

*Hugs*

Your grampa sounds alot like my gramma in Colorado was. She was a little spitfire but you'd expect that out of a woman who was the matriarch of her family (and a very large one at that) for as long as she was.

Iggy's right. The cafeteria cart lady probably just knows good people when she sees them. As for the rest of us, we got a pretty good idea about the family just by reading your mom's blog. She's good people, which means odds are that the rest of the family is more than likely good people too.
