Broken Hearts

Wednesday morning we lost a very special man. Jason's grandpa passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday morning in his home in Pennsylvania.
Since we moved to Ohio, actually since we moved to Pennsylvania four years ago, we have been closer to Grandpa. It's been great to get to spend holidays together, celebrate birthdays together and just hang out on Sunday afternoons.
We're all pretty heart broken right now but we're trying to remember those times that we got to spend together. Someone mentioned that maybe God's plan for us this year in Ohio (a place that I dreaded moving to) was so that we could spend some extra time with Grandpa and the Conway family.
Tonight is the funeral and tomorrow is the burial and we've been trying to explain it, the best we can, to Amelia.
She wanted to make something special for him "that he will love" and to show him that she misses him. She doesn't fully understand but she's processing it all pretty well.
She ended up making him a set of flowers that she can put on the ground once he gets buried and I thought it was such a sweet and thoughtful gesture.
We sure are going to miss Grandpa Great but we're thankful for the time that we had with him and that our kids have some sweet memories with him.
Please pray for the Conway family during this difficult time!
