    for my grandpa Alvie. Update later.

    I know Kim update in Random Ramblings, but for those who didn't see, we lost him. I'm on my phone at my uncles, so I'll update u guys later when I get home. Thanks for all of your prayers.

    Well, we spent the day at my aunt and uncle's, just crying and talking. We just got home about 5-6 minutes ago. I guess he was cleaning up in the bathroom and he collapsed. My grandpa heard him, but the door was locked so she couldnt get to him. She called 911 and the lady had her talk to my grandpa the whole time. She heard him moan a few times, but by the time the paramedics got there, he wasnt breathing. We followed them to the hospital and they made us go to a small waiting room in the back. Obviously, that means something bad. So after about 20 minutes, the doctor came in and told us they tried everything possible, but he had passed. I know he's with God, and Im happy for him. I'll see him again one day, but that definitely doesnt make it any easier when you lose someone you love. My grandma and him got divorced and then remarried over 18 years later, when I was 10. I was actually in my grandparents wedding. He was a happy go lucky guy and always thought anything we did was amazing. He constantly asked me about my tomatoes, because he loved them. He just asked me yesterday if I was getting my garden set up because he was dying for some home grown tomatoes. Im gonna miss him, that is for sure.

    Thanks Everyone.

    Lord, please touch Grandpa Alvie. Give him peace and be with his family as well.

    Lord, supply the peace that passes all understanding to this family right now. Wrap them in Your shadow. Give them the strength to get through this time with joy as Your word promises.
