    ... to come here for prayers, or a chance to say goodbye. My Grampy, my favorite man in the world has passed on unexpectedly today. My mother called this morning he was in the hospital and within a couple of hours is passed on in his sleep.

    I lost all my other grandparents while I was much younger, and I was always the most fond of my grandfather. He was the strong man's man... I respected any opinion he had above anyone else's. He meant so much to me that I asked him if he would preside over my husband and my wedding in 2004. That meant more then words could say.

    Anyways, I've been sick so I've been dragging very slowly today and praying all I could.... but now, I am just sad. My mother is flying down with my uncle tomorrow, but I can't leave because we're broke of course, and I'm the only one bringing in any money at all so it would be thoughtless to the rest of my family if I went.

    I just wish I could have said good-bye, and I love you!

    Those on the other side are aware of our thoughts and feelings.

    Tell him you love him, he'll hear it and perhaps give you a spiritual hug.

    It happens. It will leave a hole in your heart for the rest of your life, but time allows us to feel peace and move on.

    God bless you.

    Oh honey I am SURE he knew you loved him. It would be impossible for him not to know. I am SOOOO sorry for your loss. I have been there in my adult life and it really sucks. Yes time does make it better, but it never really goes away. [​IMG]

    So sorry for your loss, Vfem. It sounds like your grandfather passed peacefully. I know that's not much comfort, right now, though.
