Grandpa Lemon

This past Friday, December 12th, my Grandpa Lemon passed away very peacefully in his sleep after being very sick for the last few months. This is my first experience losing a grandparent, and I have been very lucky not only to have had them all here for this long in my life, but to get to see them and spend time with them pretty regularly. I was able to spend time with him and the rest of the Lemon family over the last 2 weeks, and have had some very neat experiences. I am happy to have a knowledge that Heavenly Father loves each of us, and has a very important plan for each of us. I am happy to know that the Savior lives and that He atoned for our sins so that we can, if we choose, offer Him our broken hearts, repent, have faith, and endure. And not only endure but be happy, joyful. I am happy to have a hope in my Savior, Jesus Christ and a knowledge that this life is not the end. I love my Heavenly Father, I love my Savior. And I love you grandpa.
