Grandpa Tran

Sad news came today.  Grandpa Tran passed away.  My poor mother won’t make it to her own Dad’s funeral.  My husband and children were not able to meet him.  God’s ways are not our ways.  Please pray for his soul to be in heaven.  

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Grandpa Tran was 93 years old. Here is a picture of him in July 2000. I feel blessed to have met him. He will be buried by his wife, my Grandma, in the family burial plot.
