Unbearable pain...

Well, my hubby & my lil brother celebrated their birthday's on thursday, the 24th. Josh turned 30 & Jonathan turned 23. My grandpa also was admitted to the hospital again on thursday also. He was having extreme stomach pains and turns out it was a small bowel obstruction and they could not do surgery b/c of his history and numerous surgeries and his age, 92. They finally got him calm enough he went to sleep. The nurses went in at 2am friday a.m. (yesterday) to check on him and his heart had just stopped and he stopped breathing sometime during his sleep. He died in no pain at all.
Mom called us at 2:45am and told us and i lost it. I took off work and drove down here to be w/ mom yesterday and i'm goin back home today. i helped w/ arrangements and all and cherish doing this w/ mom forever now...
my heart hurts soo much knowing i'll never hear my grandpa's voice or see him again until i'm w/ him in Glory. He was mine and i was his.
I love you grandpa... please pray for us. the service is Monday, 10 am graveside, 11 am celebration service.
this is my grandpa at Christmas in 2006. I have a recent pic somewhere of him and Shelby when she was 2 weeks old but i am so scattered i cannot think where it is..
