Remembering PaPa

Last Tuesday morning we got the call that Brent's grandfather was on life support. We had everyone at camp praying for him but by Tuesday afternoon, he had passed away. He had been sick and had medical issues, but those facts don't make it any easier to lose someone you love. Because we were at camp, Brent and I were able to sit and remember his PaPa, Kirby Minter. He was a great man who lived a great life. Google him sometime. He has his own wikipedia page! Brent was blessed to be able to perform his funeral and honor his PaPa. It was definitely a celebration of his life and the fact that he is now living with Jesus. My day and week is now being spent in prayer for Brent's grandmother. I can't imagine losing my husband after 57 years of marriage. Will you join me in lifting her up this morning and asking our Father to comfort her and give her peace as she grieves the loss of her husband?
