Gone Too Soon

This is one of the hardest stories I have ever written.
On January 10th, I lost my grandpa. It was the second of classes, I was having a great day. Then I get back to my college dorm, I checked my fb and I get this message saying call home as soon as possible. Of course my cell phone is dead, I was like this great. Then my parents told me the worst eveerr. They told me that my grandpa had died earlier that morning of a heart attack. I couldnt believe it. I was shocked then all of a sudden I lost it. I have never cried so much before in my life as I did that day. It was like I had been punched in the stomach.I was numb, I couldnt move my figures. One moment he is laughing and joking around then the next he is in a casket. I thought the best thing I can get away from the computer and go to another dorm and hang out with some ppl. I went over to the other dorm but I couldnt hold it together. Luckily there was a some guys who took care of me. They were telling me about how there grandparents passed away and stuff like that. It helped me a lil bit but It still couldnt take away pain of losing my grandpa. I am thankful helping me. I went to the dinner and luckily the baseball players made me a lil happier by joking around with me, trying there best make me happy. I  am thankful that they did that for me
That Thursday, my dad came and got me from school. I went to the funeral home and I got to spend some time with grandpa. It was the hardest thing I have ever done, seeing my grandpa in the casket tore me apart.  I lost it in the funeral. I tried to hold it together but I couldnt. I cried for a long time. I made him a promise that I would go on, get my college degree, and do something great with my life. I plan on keeping that promise. I knew I had to be strong and I had to remain strong for the family. Sometimes it is hard to remain strong and calm, but we have too.
Friday was the funeral, that was extremely hard. Knowing that was the last time I would see him. It was an honor for me to be a paul bear. He was buried up where he grew up.
I know he wants us to move on with our lifes and enjoy them. Sometimes whenever I am working out I can hear some of his jokes in my head and they make me laugh.
I want to say thank you grandpa for everything. You have meant alot to me and I am going to keep my promise and do something great with my life and I know I will see you again!!!!
luv u!!!

Thanks for listening
