Looking Back

Thursday, May 2, 2013

Today I’m getting a little personal. Yesterday was a difficult day for me because my grandpa passed away. We were extremely close and was so blessed to be able to live with him for 18 years. Yesterday brought so much pain, but I was able to look back on all the amazing memories I was blessed to make and what a gift it was to have such a great relationship with him. I was reminded how incredible it was to have him around for all the big moments in my life and what a great man he was. My heart is hurting, but there is comfort and hope knowing he is in a place where he is not restricted by his body or mind, but at peace in heaven with his beautiful bride. 
I will always have a special place in my heart for him and will hold close the great memories I have.

Love you, Bapa

  1. Oh my goodness I am so sorry for your loss. I only have one grandparent left--a grandfather--with whom I am extremely close. When his wife, my grandmother, died, I felt such a horrible loss and still do. But it is so important to think back on all the great memories and lessons they taught you. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  2. SO sorry about your grandpa! It's so comforting to know you'll see him again! Praying for you and your family!

  3. Awww, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss! I wish that we never have to experience loss and can be with our loved ones forever. I'm glad that you have a good relationship with him and he was a very loved person. He has carried all these great memories with him to heaven :)


  4. Sorry to hear that. But hope you can get out of suffering soon.

  5. Sending e-hugs to you during your time of grief. I lost my last grandparent, my maternal grandma on my 25th birthday and I miss her terribly. I pray that you will receive comfort during this time.
