Karen, I am so so sorry for your difficult time. I will send you good thoughts and prayers. Hang in there and if I can do anything for you or your family send me an email.



Have a safe trip and take care, we will all keep you in our thoughts...


Oh Karen, I'm so sorry. I'm sure he is waiting for you. Have a safe trip.


I am sorry to hear about your grandfather. I enjoy your blog on a daily basis. I'm in Dallas, if you'll be close and need anything please feel free to e-mail me. I'd be happy to help you with transportation.


He knew that you had found Mr. Right, and it was time for him to go! How sacred to be able to be there for those last times. Blessings to you and your family!

Terri Barton

Karen, I am so very sorry to hear about your grandfather. Please know I am thinking of you all as you go through this difficult time. Take care.


Karen, I'm so sorry. I have prayed for you and your Grandfather. Your Grandfather is going where he wants to be - with his beloved wife. He has wished for it for a long time. He has been waiting for this. It is difficult, but be happy for him, in your heart know that this is his journey to freedom. Be joyous that you got spend time and get to know him. He live a long, fruitful life. He will go with peace in his heart, and joy in his soul knowing what's in store for him. God bless you. Be strong.

Dear Karen,
My Prayers are with you, for you a safe trip with Annie and for the chance to see your Grandfather , even if it is for the last time.
So So Sorry.

You & your family will be in my prayers. Have a safe trip!

Teresa Brown

Karen.. I'm so sorry, my prayer are with you and your family. Have a safe trip.


Trust me, I've been in your shoes before. He'll wait for you and all of those emails are nothing compared to what you're dealing with so they can wait. :)



Saying a prayer that you get to say goodbye, even though he undoubtedly already knows how much you love him. Even though you don't know me, I'm sending huge hugs. I adored my grandfather too, and I'm so sad that my kids didn't get the privilege of knowing him.


I will be thinking of you all. Be safe, and try to have a calm heart.

Lori Hudson

Karen, it's so hard. I'm so sorry. I'm sending positive thoughts and prayers.

Anna-Marie Still

My dear - I would love to share my Grandpa story with you - so many similarities - but I know right now you just need prayer, and a hug. You are in my thoughts & prayers, really. Travel safe and trust that he knows you love him dearly forever & ever. Peace to you.



Hoping God blesses you with clear skies and safe flights on your way to your Grandpa. I know the journey will be a sad one but try to think of all that is good that you want to cherish and my prayers to you and your family. May they find peace to celebrate the life of your Gramps.

p.s.-You have his smile

Ashley Schultz

I'm so sorry. What a beautiful photo of you and him. I hope you feel comfort and peace during this time.


More prayers are going up for you and your family... so glad you're on your way to see him.


I am in tears for you. I am so sorry that your grandfather is making his way Home, but it is exciting to know that he is looking forward to it. Do not be scared......I'm sure his Beloved has made a safe place for him to land.

Prayers being lifted up for you.


Hospice is such a blessing that wasn't really available until quite recently. I hope it blesses you the way it has me.

And having learned what I have about the process of dying, I think he will wait for you too....


Hold tight to everything good you have, especially the love of everybody you have around you. But some things are just too hard, and letting go must be the hardest. I'm sending you my most positive vibes and my tears ...


I'm so very sorry to hear this. God bless you all and I send you a big hug.

Karen, i have faced a similar situation in this past month with my Gran taking a fall on her head and not waking up again.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, i hope your Grandfather does wait for you.

Hugs xxx

My grandfather died two weeks ago. And similiarly, we've also strained relationships which made it a bit uncomfortable to come together as a family- which is what my grandmother really needed. In the end, he was able to pass peacefully at home with all the people who loved him nearby, leaving his long battle with Parkinson's disease behind him. I hope that you and Annie make it in time, so that you can say what needs to be said and so that he can feel Annie's love in abundance.

kim bolyard

Karen, I a so sorry, my grandfather is 94 years old and in a home. He does not know anyone and I keep expecting that call any day. I know how hard this can be. I am so glad that you will be able to see him and say good bye. I know he will wait. Peace to you and your family.


Prayers going up for your Grandfather, Karen. May you and Annie have a safe trip. Thinking of you...


Karen, I am so sorry. My prayers for you and your family.


I am so sorry you are going through this. I will be praying for you and your family. If he knows you and Annie are coming he will hang on for you. People rebound just for the fact that they know there is something to wait for.
My Grandma waited until we were all there and did rebound before she got much worse and passed away. Thank God for hospice. They were absolutely wonderful. They told us, " A lady always knows when to leave." That still strikes me today as such an amazing thing.
Anyway I will be thinking of you.



You and your family will be in my prayers. Have a safe trip..


safe travels, Karen, and I'm so sorry to hear about your grandfather.


I am sending you the thoughts your family needs to get safely to his bedside. That "call" is the toughest thing to wait for. I am waiting for my own.....


Hi Karen,

Hope you get there on time!! Good luck!!



I know this will be a tough time for you....know that you have so many people praying for you and and your family.


You and your grandfather are in my prayers. May the Peace of the Lord be with you. AMEN


Much love and good thoughts for your trip...

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.


Prayers for you and Annie's safety and that you get to see him before....and he holds Annie...hugs too!

Karen, I am so so sorry to hear of this. What a beautiful relationship you and your grandfather shared. As a "grandpa's girl" myself - I lost mine at age 16 - I feel your loss. I know that you will cherish these moments with him and I wish you Godspeed in your travels. Prayers going up for you and your family.

Dawn M.


Just wanted to send some prayers and thoughts your way. Loss is difficult, especially when it's someone we love and care about so much. Take care of yourself!

Lori Gentile

Karen, hugs. I'm so sorry and you are all in my thoughts and prayers.


Karen, your grandfather knows you love him and will remember the good times you shared - even after his passing. I do hope you get to say goodbye, but he loves you. Don't worry.


Tracy Blanton

Dear Karen-
It was such a blessing to get to meet you last week at Scrapbook Oasis. I was heartbroken to hear your news about your grandfather. Life can be such a roller coaster at times, the ups and the downs. I wish you much comfort in your grief...knowing that even the very low moments will bring gifts to you later...
Best to you-
