Celebrating & Mourning...all at the same time

Tonight, my Pop went to be with Jesus.  We knew it was coming, but are never completely ready.  Today is also Ben's birthday.  Ben & Pop had many great talks & a special bond.  Ben was always one of the first kids to hug Pop when we visited him.
We will miss Pop greatly!  We are celebrating that finally he has a complete mind & body now.  He struggled so long.  But while we celebrate that he is with Jesus, we are so sad to not have him in our lives anymore.  But our God is so good in that he allowed us several years recently to make many memories with Pop.  We will hold on to those tightly.
