Having a place to go is home, having someone to love is family, having both is a blessing!

My dear loving grandpa Limburg.....we will miss you

I got a call on Sunday night from my dad letting me know that my grandpa had passed away. He was over at his daughter's house for Mother's Day and after was heading out to get into the car to go home and he had a heart attack and couldn't be revived. Good thing is is that he didn't suffer.
I had the wonderful opportunity to take care of my grandma and grandpa for awhile when I lived in Salt Lake. It was such a pleasure getting to know my grandpa on a whole different level. He had such a great sense of humor and a wonderful love for all of my kids. When I would go to the Heritage Place to take care of them it started when Weston was a baby and so he really got to know his great-grandpa! I would also take all the kids on fridays when they had half days so that they could have a relationship with them as well. My kids loved their great-grandpa very much and will miss him alot! My grandpa loved Jason and thought the world of him and always reminded me of how blessed I was to have him....Jason would come with me on his days off and help me with laundry and trash and just sit and talk to my grandparents. He always had them laughing!! We loved sitting there and listening to his stories.....
We were able to visit my grandparents before we moved to Wisconsin. These are some of the pictures that we took. My grandpa told me then that he would be looking down on us always and I knew then that would be the last time I saw him.
With my grandpa gone now we will cherish the memories that we had with him and the wonderful example of the great life that he lived! We love you soo much grandpa......have fun playing chess with your Son Steve and his two boys Wayne and Jeff....Also enjoy seeing your family who has passed before you........you will always be with us:)
