My Grandpa just died :-(

I don't think any feelings have set in yet. He went to the hospital earlier tonight with respitory distress. He wasn't doing badly, but he wasn't great. He died peacefully at 10:09 PM EDT. Now, he's up in Heaven, probably dancing with his wife. He wanted a room on a hill, so he could have a nice view, so I guess he's negotiating with God about that arrangement. At least my Grandma's been up there for a few years fixing the place up for him. *smiles* He was a great man and a strong Christian. He was many things, but most importantly, he was a friend to all. He will be dearly missed.

I leave with the words of this song. It was the quickest thing I could find that has something to do with my mood.

Breakfast

Newsboys



Hold the milk; put back the sugar.
They are powerless to console.
We gather here to sprinkle ashes
From our late friend's cereal bowl.
Breakfast Clubbers say the motto
That he taught us to repeat:
"You will lose it in your gym class
If you wait 'till noon to eat."

Back when the Chess Club said our eggs were soft,
Every Monday, he'd say grace and hold our juice aloft.
Oh, none of us knew his check-out time would come so soon,
But before his brain stop wavin', he composed this tune.

"When the toast is burned
And all the milk has turned
And Cap'n Crunch is wavin' farewell.
When the Big One finds you
May this song remind you
That they don't serve breakfast in Hell."

Breakfast Clubbers drop your hankies.
Though, to some, our friend was odd,
That day he bought those fine pine pajamas
His check was good with God.

Those here without the Lord, how do you cope?
For this mornin', we don't mourn like those who have no hope.
Oh, rise up Froot Loop lovers. Sing out Sweet 'N' Low.
With spoons held high, we bid our brother "Cheerio."

"When the toast is burned
And all the milk has turned
And Cap'n Crunch is wavin' farewell.
When the Big One finds you
May this song remind you
That they don't serve breakfast in Hell."
