Tonight I went to the hospital to say my final good bye to my grandpa. He had a stroke right before Jane was born, and has never fully recovered. Today his heart stopped and after 29 minutes of cpr he finally came back, but even worse than he has been. It was so hard to say goodbye knowing that I would never see him again in this life. I wish he was able to see Jane before he leaves, but I asked him tonight to watch over the other ones until they come. Tonight I cried and held his hand, and wished that one more time he could give me a big bear hug. How I love the plan of salvation and knowing that I would see him again after I left the room. The tears are hard, but the Savior did so much for us that the pain becomes lighter. Tomorrow morning they are going to take him off the respirator and let him go. He was a good man, and will soon be in a much happier and healthier place. bye grandpa.
