Goodbye to a GREAT grandfather

Ash and Haylee adored their great grandfather (aka, Pop-pop w/ a cane) they are with him celebrating his 95th birthday just this past September!!!
Today we rec'd some very sad news this morning...Jim's grandfather (the girls GREAT grandfather) had passed away. He lived 95 FULL years...he truly lived a great cancer, no heart problems, just plain old age (arthritis, hearing aid, loss of muscle strength)...he was sharp as a tac. But this past month he fell ill to pnemonia...and was not able to swallow. Surely this was not the quality of life he wanted...I believe he was ready to be with his wife again...We will surely miss him!!
