Personal post

At 5:30 this morning my maternal grandpa passed away.

He was 87 with Alzheimer’s.

I went home 2 weeks ago and got to spend some time with him.  A few days after I left he took a turn for the worse and was put into Hospice care this Monday.

He passed away in his sleep.  He didn’t suffer and wasn’t in any pain.

While I knew it was only a matter of time before it happened it doesn’t lessen the impact.

Tomorrow’s Post will be a picture of him in remembrance.

Love you Papa.

    As I said on FB, I am sorry for your loss, but I want to go a little more in depth here.

    Recently I lost my grandmother, although I knew one day it had to happen, like you said it doesn’t lessen the impact. I’m sure like me, you feel there is a bit gone from you.

    I also felt like it was a little bit of an end of an era, like almost a loss of innocence, but we know I lost that a long time ago.

    Well take care, and if you need anything that I can help with, you know how to get a hold of me.

    I wanted to post something to share my sadness at your loss, but it brought back such memories of the death of my Dad two and a half years ago, I ended up crying all over the keyboard and couldn’t find what I wanted to say. All my best regards go out to you and your family. The pain does lessen. Hugs.
