My Grandpa Passed Away Last Night

My grandpa passed away last night. My mother had this feeling that day that he wasn't going to make it, but I just couldn't believe that. It was just an hour later after I came home from my last class of the day that he passed on. I couldn't breath and I felt paralyzed with fear. I got a little teary-eyed, but it still didn't feel real. That is until the people from the funeral home came and started wrapping him up. When they covered his face I broke down. It finally hit me that this was real. He was gone. My heart hurts so much and I'll miss him immensely. I don't know how I'm going to make it through his funeral. I'll treasure the time I did have with him. But, I'm sad because I wish I had known him better.

It will stay with you for a very long time. My father passed away several years ago but I still start to tear up a times when a song comes on the radio, or a sight or smell triggers something. Just remember the good times. They'll always be with you in your heart. A very big hug for you sweet lady. For both you, and me. I think we need it.......

My condolences, young lady. The loss of a loved-one definitely is devastating. Right now you can not find the method to be positive, and remember the good times, regarding your past with your grandfather. This time will come, and you will be able to think of him with a smile.

Take care
