Timing

So we are all ready to head to the beach. The car is packed, the dog is at the kennel, the mail has been stopped. We have soooo been looking forward to a vacation and we've been counting down the days until Sophie can play on the beach. And then that all changed this afternoon. I received a call telling me that my grandpa had passed away. My grandpa who use to carry me into school so I wouldn't get my feet dirty. My grandpa who when I was little meant everything in the world to me. Of course the questions always come. Why? And the selfishness creeps up in me and asks why now? I'm sad. I'm hurt and I'm mad. I've never lost any one this close to me. I've was lucky and got to know my almost all of my great grandparents so the thought of losing a grandparent at 68 never entered my mind. I guess they say that everything happens for a reason. :(

I am so sorry for your loss!!! I'm so glad that your grandpa got to meet Miss Sophie B. That has to be a cherished memory, and now she has her very own guardian angel who can "carry" her so her feet never get dirty!

Love to you,
Andrea

Kim, I am so very sorry. I wish I could say that I understand what you're going through, but I can't. All of my grandparents had passed away by the time I was 9, so my grief was very different inasmuch as I hadn't cultivated the sort of relationship that you obviously had with your grandfather. Just cherish your memories and know that you were loved and that he was loved. God bless!
