With a very heavy heart, I am trying to make us smile

Steve's father Rein passed away last night. Not sure of the details, but as I was up staring at the wall after Steve and his brother Eric left our house last night, I went through recent photos of Grandpa Rein with the kids. It makes me feel just a little better to have them to look at.
If you knew this wonderful man, you know that he was kind, nice, positive, loving, proud and hardworking. He loved his family and we loved him. We will have a huge hole in our hearts.

Kirsten, what a beautiful post! And a lovely way to keep his memory close. They are all such lovely photos, I know what a shock it must have been and seeing him with the grandkids brings that home even more. Love all the photos. Especially that one with Max. I always thought Max looked an awful lot like you, but here you can clearly see resemblance coming down dad's line too! You can see from the photos he loved the grandkids and I am sure he is happy to be remembered in such a lovely way. Thank you for sharing with us. We'll keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
