my granpa died last night

well its been an up and down week...

my granpa died very unexpectedly last night.

thankfully he didnt suffer and he went very quickly after a long and fulfilling life.

granpa was a horse trainer...he lived his life for horses and the care and training of them..

even after he fell off and broke his hip (a moment that broke his heart i think) he still remained very active in the racing industry.

i can remember the smell of oats and creosote, the scratch of hay and the scent of the horses..

as a very small girl i learnt to walk holding onto the horses tails as he walked them down the road after used to freak my grandmother out...but the horses never kicked or bit me once.

Rest in peace granpa i love you very much

G'day Sassy,

You have my condolences. Never easy to say goodbye to a close family member.

I hope the memories help you to smile.
