Yesterday was a very special day for Emolyn. She met her great-grandparents for the first time. Emolyn is named after Randy's Mom Emolyn. Isn't this the sweetest picture of the two of them!
Randy's Dad is in a Hospice Care facility and will be going home to see Jesus and his two children very soon. (Randy's sister Patty died when she was 18 years old and his brother Barry died a few years ago)
We are so grateful that Papaw was aware that little Emolyn was there.
Randy & I could see how Emolyn filled the room with such joy and hope... reminding us that Randy's Dad will be spending eternity with God and that his 85 years on earth has affected us all deeply. I have the kindest, most hard working, loving man for a husband... and I know that his Dad had a huge part in shaping him that way. And now there is a new little one that will carry on that legacy.
It's just so sad for those of us left behind... especially his wife of 65 years, whom he dearly loves.
These are the hands of his dear, loving wife... a Godly woman who will soon be saying goodbye to her husband, helpmate, campanion and friend. May she always remember the blessings, the memories and the stories that will live on forever.
