He Will Be Missed

My grandfather passed away during the night. I thank the Lord for ending his suffering, but at the same time wish that he were still here. Please pray for my family during this difficult time

I was searching around looking for great quotes about grandfathers, life, death, etc and came across this wonderful saying. I thought it really said everything I was feeling.

God saw you getting tired, getting better was not meant to be. So He put His arms around you and He whispered, "come to me." With tearful eyes we watched, as you passed away and although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
