Pop-pop is the perfect grandfather. Not only has he worked hard all his life providing for his family, but he has also remained faithful in his love for the Lord. His predictable patience is a constant for those around him. His unassuming nature coupled with country charm enhance his unconditional love for his grandchildren. I wish I could see him more often.
He raised four kids and has survived colon cancer more than once. Recently he was hospitalized for gall bladder problems, pancreatitis, and a closed bile duct. He had a stint put in to allow the bile to flow correctly, but the doctors are unsure what the source of the problem is. Now he is at home awaiting further testing at the University of Maryland hospital on November 16th. Please pray for him as he is nauseous and is losing weight. Pray that the doctors would correctly diagnose the problem and that it would not be cancer.
I love you, Pop-pop!
