Here is a little more inspiration and humor for you…
I went and visited my Grandma (On my Mothers Side) shortly before she died and talked about a book that she helped to create. She was going to give a copy of it to each of her children. I read part of the book to my Grandma. I finished by reading a poem someone had written as a tribute about her father. The poem talked about the dignity with which he lived his life. His wife had preceded him in death many years before, and at the end of the poem it talked about the happy reunion that they must have had when he passed away. This was especially touching because my Grandpa passed away 15 years ago and grandma had lived her life with the same dignity and grace spoken of in the poem. It was beautiful! We both cried as I read the end. I love my Grandma and admire her for living alone and not having the best of health and still she continued to go forward in faith loving each and every one of her children and grandchildren. She has since passed away and I know that there was a very happy reunion when her and her husband saw one another again.
My Grandmother (On my Father's Side) passed away several years ago and my Grandfather has also set such a great example for me. He is 90 years old and he still travels around loving and spending time with his family. He is a great example to me and there will be another happy reunion for he and my Grandmother when he passes away. Here is a poem that my Grandmother (On my Father's Side) wrote to my Grandpa who is still living.
"So rapidly have the years flown by,
Today they have reached thirty-seven.
And a temple marriage long ago
Will keep us together in heaven.
There are so many words to use,
Like happiness, bliss and more,
But one word sums up life for me,
It's 'you' whom I adore.
We have been wed so many years,
It's more then half my life,
But I'm grateful to my Heavenly Father
That you made me your wife.
Our marriage craft has sailed along
On stormy seas and calm,
But we've always weathered the strongest blow.
Our love has healing balm.
The two years that we spent apart
Were lonesome it is true,
But contentment came with our first babe,
For she was part of you.
(Grandpa was in the Military during World War II
and this is the reason for the two years of separation.
Because of the war, he was not see his first-born daughter
until she was Four Months old.)
And over the years as babies came
Their number grew to seven.
As our love and faith grow stronger still
we know they came from Heaven.
We have shared much joy and gladness,
Sorrow too has come our way.
But always with you beside me,
There is peace when we kneel to pray.
May our years together go on forever
For this love will never die.
Our marriage for time and eternity
Has sealed together you and I."
May the Lord bless us all of us as we try to take care of one another.
I hope that you have a wonderful day!
