Yesterday we found out that my daddy's dad (Grandpa John) has pancreatic cancer. He's in stage 4...we had to ask what that meant exactly and basically he doesn't have much time. We are all shocked because Grandpa, of all people, would be the man to live until he is 115. He's the healthiest eater and exerciser that I've ever known for a man his age. It just goes to show that Heavenly Father has his own plan for us and all we can do is live the best we can...

Okay, I wrote that a couple of days ago. Now the word is that he will not be here much longer...like, there may be a funeral within the next month. My grandpa has never been the touchy-feely, lovey-dovey type! But I will never forget the hospitality and love that he showed Mark and me when we visited him and my grandma just a couple of months ago in St. George. Their home burned down...

 They are rebuilding it right now, but no one believes that they will be able to move in! My grandpa had the best outlook...he didn't show any signs of being distressed, but just thanked Heavenly Father that neither he nor my grandma were hurt. That would NOT have been my reaction! My poor grandma...she definitely took it harder than he did, and I can't imagine how distressed she is with the news of his disease. Keep them in your prayers! I love you grandma and grandpa!
