88 years...

Today @ as Tanner turns 3 weeks old I think how time has flown and how much more he has to see and learn. I can just imagine all the stuff that Paul's Grandpa, Fredrick Arthur Nyquist had seen in his 88 years. Sadly he passed away at his house on the farm this morning @ 6am. He had been sick for a while and seemed ready to go. He said his goodbyes to Paul on Thursday when Paul left the farm for the weekend and made sure to send his love to me and Tanner. He was very loved and will be missed. Paul will have to make sure to tell Tanner about his Great-Grandpa Fred and teach him all about the farm that Grandpa loved so much. It is a very sad day but at the same time there is a sense of relief that Grandpa is no longer in pain. He lived a very full life and had expressed his readiness to pass. The visitation is on Wednesday from 5 to 8 @ Dirks Blem Funeral Home in Olivia, MN. Funeral will be held @ 11 am on Thursday in Danube MN before Grandpa takes his final resting place next to his wife @ the Fort Snelling cemetery.

We love you Grandpa!!!
