My Grandpa

Below I posted the eulogy I gave at my Grandpa's funeral this past Saturday. It was an honor to speak about someone who was such an influence in my life.

On Monday, December 6th, Grandpa had a stroke in a parking lot, fell, hit his head and in the following days slowly slipped away. I was fortunate enough to be able to spend the day in the hospital with him on Wednesday. Although he wasn't conscious, it was nice to be able to be by his side, reading, talking, and watching him sleep peacefully.

Grandpa had a special relationship with my kids, and for that I feel extremely blessed.

I have hopes to update you on other areas of what's been going on in Casa Llena, so please check in the following days for posts before and after the eulogy.

Rest in peace, Grandpa. June 1, 1919 - December 9, 2010

Wow! I didn't know you got to give the eulogy! I haven't read it yet, but I know you did a great job. I didn't know the circumstances surrounding his passing. You and your family have been in my prayers. Love you!
