Grandpa Heins

This summer Aaron, the kids, and I had the opportunity to spend three days in Minnesota with Grandpa and Grandma Heins. It's not often that we have the opportunity to spend time with them. Every Thanksgiving most of Aaron's family flies out that way for a big celebration. Having three small children, we usually don't have the financial means to make the trip.

However, for Grandpa and Grandma Heins 60th wedding anniversary we made sure to be there. I'm glad we did. Amelia fell in love with her grandpa. The two of them were inseparable.  Wherever Great Grandpa Heins was Amelia could be found. 

At least once a week she will ask when she will get the chance to see him again. Sadly, he passed away tonight.

He was an amazing man, the kind of person that made you smile just to be around because he was so full of light.  I adored him.  He will be missed.
