Melanie and family,
So sorry to hear about your loss. I am sure your Poppa will be greatly missed here on Earth and welcomed by Jake's loving arms up in Heaven.
Jessi, Thank you so much for the update and that video of Ellie is so darn cute! Her accent is ADORABLE. It's funny how I think everyone sounds like me and then when I hear a Southern accent it throws me for a complete loop.
Wishing you all the best!

Lovin' me some Ellie Sue singing her ABC's!!!! Can she get any cuter?
I am so sorry to hear about your Poppa's passing, but glad he gets to play with Jake. I understand how you feel, my father passed away about a month ago. You know where I am if you need anything. Hugs, Marla

Mo, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your poppa sounds like a very special man. Treasure those good memories in your heart.

Kelly said...

Hi Mo. I'm so sorry to hear about your Poppa. My Nana passed away a little over a year ago. She suffered from Multiple Myeloma as well.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

Kelly said...

...just had to add that I LOVED Ellie's ABC's! That southern accent is the cutest. We California folk aren't used to that. Such a little sweetie!

Bj said...

My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family Mo...I lost my 103 year old "granny" in October and I miss her a lot. Your Poppa sounds like a wonderful man and I'm sure he and Jake are doing some serious "catching up" even as I speak. May God grant you the peace that passes all understanding! Huggers, Bj

Christie said...

Mo, I am thinking of you all today. May God give you all comfort and peace.

Jeanie said...

Lindsey said...

Mo...I am praying for your family in this time of loss. However thanks Jesse for adding the Happy video. Mo I think Ellie might have a little south in her. Nothing better then a good southern accent. What do you think? :)

eau said...

So so sorry for your loss........blessings to you and your families~~

MaryH said...

Keep your Poppa busy in Heaven. Talk to him often. Ask him for his help. Send prayers to him for all your needs or worries. He can work for you in the best way now - he is in the presence of his Lord and he can present your prayers in person. He is strong and vibrant again and ready to help you. However, no matter how good it is for your Poppa, it still hurts.

Zhohn said...

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Mo.

Love you guys.
BELIEVING!

Dottie Phillips said...

Mel,
So sorry to hear about the loss of your Poppa. He seemed like a very special man. I'm sure that he and Jake are celebrating in Heaven!

By the way, I was sitting in a pretty relaxed meeting today and 11:11 I just happened to pick up my phone to notice the time, I said... "Oh Hey Jake!" My co-workers looked at me like I was crazy so I took the opportunity to tell Jake's story. I enjoy sharing it with them and am always careful to direct them toward his website in hope of another supporter!

Praying for peace and comfort for your family.

God Bless

Mel-
Wow- Heaven has a new angel. I know you will miss him and I am so sorry that you will be apart for a while but I just love to picture Jesus with his hand on your grandfather's head saying to him, "well done my good and faithful servant". It gives me chills. It also warms my heart to think of Jake running and leaping into Poppa's arms.
Thinking about your family at this time.
xoxo
Jill

So sorry for your loss! My Grandma has been gone 18 years and my Grandpa has been gone about 5, I still dream about them and miss them all the time. I wouldn't trade my memories of them for all the gold in the world! I can tell you love your poppa like I loved my grandparents!

Musings of a Homeschooling Mom said...

Melanie,

I am so sorry to hear the news about your Poppa. I had no idea that Dub was your Poppa. He just helped do my husband's grandmother's funeral at the beginning of November. He is now with Billie and so many other loved ones. He is pain free. That is such a blessing. Billie was my husband's aunt's sister. My husband's grandmother always respected and loved Dub. She'd insisted for years that he do her funeral. He was not feeling well then, but still did her funeral because that was the kind of man he was. I'm praying for you and your family.

jneman said...

Beverly said...

Mo, I'm so sorry for your loss. Oh, but heaven is rejoicing in his coming home. And he will always be with you. I'm sure you will carry his teachings and loving ways in your heart forever.

Mackenzie Holley said...

SO cute! You are the smartest little thing, Ellie! And I'm very sorry about your loss, Mrs. Melanie.

Kathryn said...

Melanie and sweet family. John and I are in Key West, and I didn't know about this until just now. God bless you all, and our prayers are with you. May the Peace of the Angels be with you.
