"Pop"

Last Friday we lost our beloved Pop. He was almost 92 years old and going strong. We are going to miss him so much, but I am so incredibly thankful that Lael got to meet him. He joined our family about 7 and a half years ago when he asked my Memama to marry him, and it was such an enormous blessing to have a new grandfather. He loved my grandmother so much, and loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren as if they were his own. He lived his life serving God and others, and was full of life up until the day he died. His life served as a great example of selflessness. God was so gracious to have given us so many wonderful times and memories with him. Pop is now with his Heavenly Father and for that we are so grateful.

This is the last picture I took of Lael with him a few weeks ago. Trey had some business in Charlotte and so we tagged along and visited Memama and Pop. I'm so glad we did. We went out for pizza that night and had such a sweet time together.


I just had to include these sweet ones of Lael and her Memama that were taken that day, also. Priceless.



My husband put together this little video of Pop and Lael together. This was taken a couple of months ago when Lael was about 3 months old. Enjoy. :)
