Peace

My grandpa died today.

He had been fading for the past few days, and we knew he might not make it through the weekend, and he finally passed away at 9:47 this morning. He went quietly, with everyone he loved around him, and I'm glad he's finally at peace. My family was actually nice to each other, as well, so I guess there's hope for us all. We'll see...

He had a long, tough life, and he worked himself to the bone for everything he ever had, and I never heard him complain about anything once. He was the closest thing to a dad that I ever had, and I loved him dearly. I'm gonna miss him somethin' fierce, and I just hope that in the years I have left, I get to live half the life that he did. I'm fine, and I know he & everyone else will be better off now, but I might be gone for a day or two. Thanks to all you guys who sent your best wishes to him in the past...I'll tell you more about him one day.

So sorry to know that. But looking at the bright side of things, he is already where all of us want to go one day, when we are done serving our time.

Ex.,
All my prayers and positive thoughts are coming your way. I'm glad that the family got along for that time, and I'm glad he didn't have to be alone when he went. Don't forget to take some time for yourself in all of this. Hug your mom and know that people care.

I am sorry for your loss. I lost my grandpa last year - he passed away the day before his 90th birthday... I truly believe they never really leave us in spirit, even though their bodies can't contain them any more.
