I am so sorry for your loss! I pray that God will hold you all in the comfort of his arms right now. It’s always so hard to lose a family member, but a dad or grandpa is especially hard. He knows you loved him, and I am sure he loved you, even in the midst of disagreements or misunderstandings. Family is all we have, and family is all that matters. Cling to each other, and God, and you will get through these most painful times. Remember the good times & good memories, they are what matter. I am sending love, hugs and prayers to you all.
