1 Year Ago

One year ago today, my Grandpa passed away. I remember it like it was yesterday. I remember making the tough phone call to my siblings. I remember how quickly he passed. I remember standing around his bed saying goodbye. I remember leaning on each other for comfort. I remember the wonderful hospice staff. I remember the many kind people who came for us and for Grandma.

Grandpa, we love you and miss you. You are not forgotten - your memory lives on.

Tonight the boys and I will spend time with Grandma - we can't wait! She is an amazing and strong lady.

I understand how you feel. It's been 17 years since I lost my first grandmother, 15 for grandpa, 6 for my other grandpa, and 3 for my last grandma. I remember their birthdays and death days every year as if it just happened. It's so hard, but be comforted that even 17 years later, I still remember Grandma as if she were still here. I am glad he got to meet the boys. I pray God gives you peace today.
