    my grandpa passd away sunday n funaral will be tomarrow with full milatary honors..id like to share a poem that realy got to me as i read it...i will miss u gramps

    God looked around His garden
    and He found an empty place.
    .
    He then looked down upon this earth
    and He saw your tired face.
    He put His arms around you
    and lifted you to rest.
    .
    God's garden must be beautiful.
    He only takes the best.
    .
    He knew that you were suffering.
    He knew you were in pain.
    .
    He knew that you would never
    get well on earth again.
    .
    He saw that the road was getting rough
    and the hills were hard to climb.
    .
    So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered
    “Peace Be Thine.”
    .
    .
    It broke our hearts to lose you
    but you didn't go alone.
    .
    For part of us went with you
    the day God called you home.
    .
    You left us beautiful memories.
    Your love is still our guide.
    .
    And though we cannot see you
    you are always by our side.
    .
    .
    Our family chain is broken
    and nothing seems the same.
    .
    But as God calls us one by one
    the chain will link again.

    I lost my mom's father last year, but my dad's dad is still doing quite well.

    I will always be thankful that I asked my dad's father to be my best man at my wedding eighteen years ago. My dad performed the ceremony. It was really neat having three generations lined up in white tuxedos! This is a memory that I will always cherish.

    Man, I really do love Pap-pa...I think I'll give him a call today.

    You will be in my prayers.

    Jay, we had tapps played at my dads funeral a few years back and I have the same poem here as well. As much as you will miss him, hes in a far better place with no pain, and one day you will see him again.Just look back and cherish the memories you have of time spent with him and pass on the lessons you have learned for others to share. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
