during the holidays seems to affect me more so than any other time of the year. Early this morning, Ted's Grandpa passed away. I hope it was a peaceful pass into heaven! He suffered immensely from emphysema and lung cancer due to smoking his whole life. He was in so much pain and now that pain has been taken away. But it still is hard to imagine life without him. I didn't know him as well as I would have liked but the loss is still difficult and my heart goes out to family and friends who are affected by his loss.
Grandparents are such blessings, aren't they! I feel so blessed to still have my two Grandmothers and one Great-Grandmother. And Ted's two Grandmothers.
Tell your Grandparents that you love them!
