The Empty Chair

During the time of Bible study/prayer meeting I have a tendency to look to my left at CV and beyond.  I remember “Grandpa Van” sitting at the end seat on the other end of the  row, and saw that his seat was empty.  He was not there and his walker was also not there.  I felt an emptiness or someone was missing.  I do miss “Grandpa Van” very much.  I still cannot believe that he is gone now.  I am still feeling the loss of a good man who knew the Lord.
