Good Bye Grandpa Kannard~an ODE to YOU!!!~

I really don't have a picture for you right now. I have a good-bye for my grandpa. My grandpa was a loyal, honest, trusting man. I don't know ANY many men like him. I didn't visit him often(in my adult years) but, I loved him. He was one of the good guys. He was trusting, loyal, and fun. He never made a fuss. and he would never cause a problem. My grandpa was one of the great ones. One guy you'd dream of.... I visited him often when I was young. Then when I was an adult, life took over.... you know, kids, husband, job, money, life, struggles, love, hate, etc..... but whenever I went to visit him~ he'd always share his wisdom... always. He would never want you to make a fuss over anything. He thought your kids were divine.... He loved McDonald's breakfast~ the Hot Cake combo.... He was simple=== yet, he was so loving. So sweet... He was the BEST man in my world... I will feel this pain of him passing for many years. He was the type to say, what r ya doin' don't make a fuss ovr' that! He was a goood ole' country boy from Tennessee.... He would help anyone out. In a second he'd be your family... I'll miss you Grandpa~ Like the tears that fall on me...... I'll have you in my heart FOREVER and ETERNITY.... Remember what we talked about those few weeks ago------ I"ll meet you at McD's so our hearts will GrOW...... from me to you grandpa... If you can here me ~~~ I love you more than words could ever show.... And, I know what we talked about, our families will grow.. ( I remember our words that day-- it hurt me so-- but now that your gone. (like you said)my love will grow..... I will do as you wanted me to do, no matter what it will bring~ but I know what our words were.... our hearts will sing. It's so hard to imagine now... But, like you told me that day..... "No matter what other 's pain will bring~~~ your heart will surely sing"... And that to me Grandpa will always be...... I'll always love you.. You were always there for me.... And the talk we had just a short while ago, will bring it all to me....(just like you said.) I LOVE YOU GRANDPA~~~no matter what the dirt will bring~~~~~~ MY ode to you OL' man. I love you.... forever and eternity..... I'll see ya at Mc D's on Saturday.... LOve you grandpa Kannard.... FOREVER.................................................. ( I'll see ya when I get there)........................................

It was only hanging up for 20 minutes before I snagged it! The little fairy jar in front with the pink bow is a Sommerset Workshop project. Of course it was Sandra Evertsons!!! I love how colorful her work is! there's even more of her projects in that issue! I love it!!! Well lovelies~Have yourself a terrific Tuesday! I'll be by tomorrow!
