Wow, those two guys look pretty spiffy! So glad they have been a part of my life:) We were married in ’84 though…..only 25 yrs. ago! You look so cute, Ryan! And look where G’pa’s missing his finger….oh, those stories start rolling again:) What a fun dad and g’pa to have! We were talking about meekness last night in RU and what an example Clair Hayward was of that. Glad he’s enjoying Heaven!
I just LOVE those photos! Probably the only time you Ryan and Grandpa were dressed just alike. It appears you and G’pa know something the rest of us don’t, by those smiles! What a good life we’ve had, with wonderful memories. I remember the fishing was done at Seney, near Grand Marais. It always amazed us that we could love our grandchildren SO MUCH!!!! We seldom took a trip without some of them so we wouldn’t miss them. What a wonderful life!
"The enjoyment of God is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven fully to enjoy God is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands or wives or children, or the company of earthly friends are but shadows; God is the substance. These are but the scattered beams; God is the sun. These are but streams; God is the ocean."
