Sleep Well Grandpa

The past 24 hours have been a whirlwind for the Hosford/Snellink family. Grandpa Snellink (Gloria's Father), went into the hospital yesterday morning for his weekly radiation treatment for the cancer he was battling again and was admitted with sever phenomena in both lungs. He had been very week the past few days, and was so exhausted. We later found out that he had a laceration or whole in the bowel area that was making his body toxic. He got very ill, very fast and passed away late last night with family at his side.

We were very blessed to spend a great deal of time with Grandpa on Sunday and he was oddly reminiscent. He spoke of playing cards and camping with the kids and the many wonderful times he has had with Grandma. He was so positive and there was almost a calm about him. The Lord had his hands in this for certain and that was so important yesterday when we were faced with all of this very fast. Please keep Grandma Snellink in your prayers as this will be a hard adjustment after almost 60 years of a wonderful life together.

We will miss Grandpa ( or G-Pa) very much but know that he is with his Lord right now and free from pain. We love you Grandpa.
