Day 46: A very unhappy Christmas....

Christmas is supposed to be a very happy time for all, but today, my family got some terrible news today. My grandfather passed away at the age of 92. Though we expected his death soon, and we were told he would be on death watch, we tried to prepare ourselves for it, but once it hit, it's really hit our family hard.
My father was hit the hardest with his father's passing, and to here my father cry, the man I've never heard or seen cry tore me up to hear him in such agonizing pain and suffering over his father's death.
Though my grandfather and grandmother choose to move away from our family, and I haven't seen him in years, it still was tough for me because I could remember how much of a good grandfather he was to me when I was little.

I really don't know what else to say right now, the sadness is there, and I cannot get rid of it. Right now, I wish I could just be happy again. But that might take a while.
If I'm not posting for the next couple of days, I hope you will understand.

As always, thanks for reading. I suggest if you have kids, hug them and tell them you love them.
And if you do not, if you have a mother and father, call them and tell them you love them.

God bless,

I'm sorry for your loss Joe, especially on Christmas. Your grandfather was blessed with a long life, and I'm sure he is now happily meeting his reward--but that doesn't make it any less painful for those left behind, who feel his absence. You learned something about your father also, by his intense grieving. It is up to those who remain to lean upon eachother in times of mourning, to help eachother through. I send prayers of peace, love, and comfort to you and your family.
