Wordless Wednesday

These are dear, dear pictures to me. Pictures of my son having a sword fight with my dad (aka, Papa) just a few short weeks before my dad died of cancer. It's hard to believe these pictures were taken a mere two months ago! But what a great memory.

Such cool photos. I only met your dad once but really liked him...and you can see the utter joy on his face playing with his grandson.

I see more sword fights in heaven someday. (Hmmm, maybe you can use real swords without any fear of death!)

I am so sorry for your loss. And the loss your son will have without his grandpa. I grew up with one grandpa, and they make all the difference in the world of child. Such sweet pics to remember him by. Hopefully your son will remember him, too.

Thank you for sharing such precious photos and memories with us. I'm sure Bookworm 1 will also treasure them in the years to come as you share stories with him about your dad!

Precious. My boys were very little when my dad died (18 mos and 4 yrs) and I cherish each picture I have of my dad with them. I have them around my house and in each of their bedrooms and we talk about Grandpa a lot, so that he is still a part of their lives.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
