Dearest friends and acquaintances of Deviantart, today at 1:10pm my grandfather Richard Edmunds passed away. He was 82 years old. He lived a long, full life of love, bluntness, stubbornness, caring, kind, intelligent, hard worker and a fighter. He was a grandfather you could enjoy yourself being around with. He had a loud laugh that would echo throughout the room and people would know when he was around. He loved every single grandchild he had and wanted us to do well in life and succeed. He took pride in himself yet was a private person and didn't express himself like others would. He was a businessman and an owner of his own company up until his he was declining in health. My soul is aching with pain and sadness but I know he is with God now. I hope God can handle is stubbornness, because we all could here.
We know you can no longer stay with us,
you fought long and hard to be with us.
We know you now watch over and protect us.
Although we cannot hear your voice or see your smiling face,We know deep down in our hearts that you have not left us.Instead every day you surround us with the singing of the birds, the rising of the sun and the falling of night.
So many broken hearts are left behind,
But in our deepest despair our greatest comfort lies knowing that you are now at peace with the angels and God.
So as times passes our tears will dry,
our hearts will mend, but our love for you will never end.
