Today was an amazing day, I am so so glad that it is over with but it was very special. Thank you so much to all our family and friends who came and supported us. It meant so much to us and brought a special comfort to my family and I. Love you all very much. Pops would have loved today. I pray that he got a glimpse of his service from Heaven today. All of his friends and family there sharing stories about how he touched their life. He would not have liked being the center of attention but he deserved every minute of it. It would have made him smile :)
It is all just surreal to me that my pops is no longer here. The whole time during his service I couldn't take my eyes off his casket, I knew his body was in there but for some reason it was so hard to believe. When I think about Pops I think of the times when he was well and at home and it seemed like nothing could stop him or bring him down....and now he is in Heaven at peace with our Lord. Where did all the time go? Mom, dad, Megan, Chris and I went back home tonight and watched old Christmas videos of grandma and Pops. It was the perfect way to end the day. In a way it seems like those days were just yesterday and I'm so thankful for those memories, they are priceless and no one or nothing can ever take them away.
I am so glad today is over with, we are all so exhausted. I will rest in peace tonight knowing that I will be with my pops again one day. I have some flowers next to my bed that were on his casket. I love and miss you Pops!
