 The Grandfather ~ pt3
They say life’s like digging a ditch
Then you die
Life’s also Beautiful
 Enjoy some laughter
After a good cry
There’s joy & pain
We brush ourselves off
We praise from gratifications gained
Keep the Faith
Is my Grandfather’s favorite saying
Two children
The grandparents lost
Two years apart
Left them both with a broken & torn heart
The Grandfather’s cold heart
Turned warm
Now from his first wife
He didn’t want to part
Guess he really did love her from the start
He showed true compassion
When she lost her only two children
And his two oldest & their oldest granddaughter
All three were as beautiful as could be
Her three girls
Breath taking
Devestating her world 
Some things we will never understand
He went back to his wife almost 60yrs later
To hold her hand
We let go of dismay
Life is Joy & Pain
Gratifications gained
Life is love
When you have
Faith from above
