Happy Thanksgiving.

Comment by Nathan Giffin Vertical Artisans on November 25, 2011 at 10:47am

I also want to extend a hardy back slap and a cheerful salutation to all who are on this site for a wonderful Thanksgiving.

That being said....yesterday the family called Grandpa and Grandma Giffin who spend their winters in Naples Florida every year ( Grandpa still drives Grandma even at the age of 94 every year )

We all said Happy Thanks Giving and the I love you's .... anyway after we hung up we received a call from Grandma, she was in the shower and informed us that Grandpa hung up the phone with us and pass away right on the couch.

Keep our family in pray over the next several days as we deal with this loss.  He was a great man and I saw him just a few days ago at grandmas 90+ B-day.

Sorry for your sad news Nathan. I know it's small consolation, but when it's my turn to move on, I hope that I would be so lucky to have a chance to to tell everyone I loved them, then pass on peacefully. My prayers are with you and your family.
