grandpa riedel

My heart is heavy.  My beloved Grandpa Riedel suddenly passed away yesterday.  Some of you might remember I just lost my Grandma, his wife, just a few months ago.  I like to think they just couldn't be apart - he went to join her in heaven.  I can just see them, in their restored, non-hurting bodies dancing their infamous German polka.

I love this picture of him and my daughter from a couple of years ago.  What a discussion they were having!  As usual, he was passing along his wisdom and love.

So bear with me while I travel to be with my family, reminiscing about all the great things this man did in his life and healing our aching hearts.  I feel really bad about not posting lately, but sometimes life just gets in the way.  While my parents were visiting, I really tried to stay away from the computer and enjoy our time together.  And now there is this.  I'm sorry and I'll be back soon.


  1. So sorry to hear about your loss. Prayers for you and your family.

  2. Thinking about you:)

    Blessings, Ashley

  3. I know this wonderful man and the eulogy you gave in his honor would have made him smile and thank God for giving him a granddaughter like you.
