We went over to his house to be with the family and it made me very sad when I walked through the door and he wasn't in his chair. He was always sitting in the same chair and when I would walk through the door he would say "hey gal" and ask me how I was doing, and I would ask him the same.
I know he is in a better place now. His wife of over 30 years died six years ago and he never let go of her, and now he is with her, so I know he is happy.
My fiance is taking it hard though. His grandfather was the only real father figure he ever had, and he raised him well. I just hope that Chris is not hurting too much. He is not one to show his true emotions, even to me, so all I know to do is stand by his side and be there for him.
I plan on taking one of the pictures that we have of Grandpa holding Grace and putting it in her baby book with a little something about him, so she knows who he was and that he loved her.
Rest in peace Richard "Dick" Roy Ferrel.
