Love "Cliftoned" me

What does that mean you ask? Last Thursday my husbands Grandpa went to join our heavenly Father. He was a wonderful Godly man. Not sure if I mentioned that my husband (he is 41 years old), until last Thursday had all 4 of his grandparents. Still married, both sets for 69 years. Grandpa was an amazing man. A godly man. A lifelong educator, and basketball coach. He LOVED his Missouri Tigers, and Kansas City Royals baseball. Last, but certainly not least he loved his family. Some of the most endearing qualities of my husband, he picked up from his Grandpa. He was so loved, I am grateful for the unconditional love he showed me!
I almost forgot to tell you about Love Cliftoned Me. When Grandpa was a boy, the would sing the hymn, Love Lifted Me, he always thought they were singing Love Cliftoned Me. Please say a quick pray for hubby, he is going to give the eulogy. He has written an outline but going to speak from the heart.

More in a few days when we return home.


  1. Oh, so sorry. But what a legacy.

    And I love stories about what people thought hymns say. :)

    One of my friends always thought a hymn sang, "Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me, Andy tells me I am his own..." lol

    There are more, I just can't think of it. So funny.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. Sounds like grandpa was a great man and he will surely be missed.
