Today Nathan's Grandfather passed quietly to the otherside to be with the love of his life. It will be sad to have gone but it is also happy to know that he once again with Grandma. When Nate's mom called the kids were setting the table for breakfast & so Nate spoke with her for a few moments & then we went into the front room and spoke with the kids & said a prayer to thank our Heavenly Father for the time we had had with such an amazing man. We shared some fun stories & then talked about how happy he & Grandma must be to be together again. Then we went on with finishing breakfast. As we sat down Nate asked McKay to say the blessing on breakfast & I swear that child has such a vision of what Heaven is really like. Before he closed his prayer he blessed that Grandpa & Grandma would have a wonderful day in Heaven together today.
I have never thought that way about the after life. About it being fun & joyous. His prayer just made it all right.
Nate's Gradnfather was an amazing Basketball player and lettered at the "U" so I think it only right that they would win today even if it were foootball.
Dying isn't always about saddness when one has lived such a great and glourious life & when we have the Gospel & we know we will be together again & for this I am so thankful. I also look forwaord to when it is my time to go & I have a wonderful day in Heaven.

Certainly it was a gift to have Nathan's grandfather in your lives for the time you did. It reminds me of the Primary song with the verse "my life is a gift, my life has a plan". The opportunity to live in this life is a great gift. We are blessed to gain experience and knowledge that will benefit us in the life hereafter. It is a blessing when loved ones can be reunited once again on the other side of the veil. What a joyous reunion that must have been for Nathan's grandfather and grandmother. I am sorry for your loss.
