Yesterday My Grandpa Mac passed away. He had just celebrated his 94th birthday at the end of March but in recent week had gotten several bad infections and yesterday afternoon he passed away. My Grandpa was funny little guy who we know loved us but sometimes struggled to show it. I do have some good memories of him growing up and I am grateful for his life and example. He was a hard worker and therefore taught my Dad to work hard who in turn taught me and my sisters! He was a widower for 10 years and for many of those 10 he really just wanted to go ahead to be with Grandma. I remember him saying once a few years back that she, my Grandma, was the only girl he had ever kissed and loved. What a sweet reunion they had yesterday along with my Aunt Gaye, his only daughter, who passed away 4 years ago. Grandpa was a good man and we will miss him!
