Jana Kramer is mourning the death of her beloved grandpa, Jim Kauffman.
Jim passed away on Wednesday morning (July 20). “Heaven has a new angel. My grandpa, Jim Kauffman. Our hearts are broken,” Jana said in a post honoring her grandpa.
She asked her followers to please keep her grandma, Marge Kauffman, in their prayers. Marge and Jim had been together for 72 years.
Jana’s family wasn’t sure if Jim would make it to see the 4th of July. But he did, and everyone got the chance “To kiss and hug him one last time….”
She went on to remember the type of person her grandpa was, calling him “the funniest man [she] ever met.”
“He would have us laughing until we cried at the campfire with his jokes and stories. He was the euchre king and taught me everything I know about that game. He was a tough man but he loved my grandma since 4th grade…Also, No one will ever be able to make stuffing as good as u on thanksgiving… EVER.”
Jana shared several photos and videos of her grandpa too. You can see her post below.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jana and her entire family during this sad time. May her grandpa Jim rest in peace.
