Goodbye Grandpa Madsen

Wednesday afternoon Justin's Grandpa passed away. He had been in the ICU at LDS Hospital for over 2 months, battling complications from Pancreatitis.
He meant a lot to so many people....especially Justin.
No matter how much time you spend with someone you love, its never enough and you will regret not spending more time when they are gone.
Here are some of our recent memories with Grandpa:
Elk Hunt 2009. Justin's first Elk hunt
We stayed with Grandpa and Sandy at the end of June (just 3 months ago) and
Justin fished with his grandpa all weekend.
Kenlee really enjoyed this trip and loved Grandpa's sparkly boat!

We loved him very much and he will truly be missed. You can't sum up his life in a few short words, so I won't even try. His memories and stories will always live on through those of us that were fortunate enough to be a part of his life.

What a nice post and tribute to Grandpa Madsen! You guys were always so good to keep in touch with him. I've been thinking how glad you invited him to Thanksgiving dinner last year!!!
