I Lost My Grandfather On My Fa...

I lost my grandfather on my father's side when I was 10 years old. I feel bad because for years I thought he didn't like me. Then I found out that he loved me, it was his wife that didn't like me. I loved a woman who hated me and hated a man that loved me.

I recently lost my great-grandfather. I was closer to him than my grandfather. My GGreandfather died because of old age and poor health. He suffered a stroke 14 years ago and hasn't been able to talk or walk since then. Even though he was an invalid, we still had a strong connection. I never actually thought that he would die because she has lived so long like that.. I thought he would last forever. What I wanted the most was to swing him around in his wheel chair on my wedding day. (he looooved to dance)
He passed 2 weeks ago, but I'm still having a hard time. I miss him so much. We were really close.

don't blame yaself, lifes to short :)

I lost my grandfather on February 16,2008. The last day that I saw him was valentine's day- that was thursday. He died on saturday..<br />
He was like the father that I never had. He suffered from emphysema badly for a long time, and finally ended up going to one of those places where older people go to basically be well medicated before they die.<br />
<br />
He was only there for two days, and he miraculously got really really better. he came home. A lot of family came from out of state to welcome him home...I think we all knew that the end was nearing.<br />
<br />
I remember telling him what my plans were for Valentine's day. Him saying Honey you look very pretty today, be careful on your way to work, and I love you. - I was heading out the door after I dropped my son with him and my grandmother for the day. I never saw him again.<br />
<br />
I still don't feel like he is gone. i feel happiness for him, that he is no longer suffering the debilitating illness that is emphysema. Its hard to breathe just after walking a few steps when you have that illness. <br />
<br />
Now he can dance up there.<br />
Now he can walk up there. <br />
Now he can breathe again.<br />
<br />
He's up there now, in his own little heaven, sailing his model boats he liked to make when he was down here.<br />
<br />
Keep watch over my son, while you're up there, grampa!

Wow that really sucks.

All my grandparents have passed away. I miss them.

I am so sorry for your loss! All of my grandparents are deceased but one. My mother's father is the only one living. In fact I haven't seen him in a while and I am going to visit him this Sunday. I loved all my grandparents and its sad when we lose them. I still have fond memories of all of them.
