RIP Grandma Hess – Sand, a photo by Lou Rain on Flickr.

This summer has been a tough summer, my wife’s grandfather passed away suddenly and her grandmother was hospitalized. Gramma has returned home in hospice care and constant monitoring, my wife has been there every step of the way. Sadly, she passed away 2 days before we would leave for vacation.

Seeing how my wife has been there truly inspired me and made me realize even more how much I love her.

We are a very close family and love to spend time with family and friends, which we believe is the purpose of life. Spending time with the people you love is the greatest gift of life and I don’t every want to miss out on that. There is no amount of money in the world that can replace the quality time you spend with loved ones.

Seeing the smiles of their faces, hearing the laughing of their voices and comforting them in times of sorrow. This is what makes family and this is what I value about life. There are so many sad things in the world that you have to make time to share in the happiness of life. The real happiness is something that can be remember and be stored in your heart.

May God Bless You and Rest In Peace Grandma Hess.
