One year ago yesterday my Grandpa passed away. I still get sad about it sometimes, but his health wasn't good, and my grandma has passed away 6 years before, and he was lonely. It's still strange sometimes to suddenly realize they're not around. I'm visiting my folks in Chicago, and the second day we were here, my mom told me that the new furniture in the living room was in my grandpa's apartment. And I thought, "Well, what's Grandpa using, then?" And that's when I realized he'd be gone for almost a year. It's bittersweet. I am thankful he no longer suffers, but I miss him.
so sorry, in another month it'll be one year ago that my stepfather passed away, & yeah, doesn't feel like that long & I still miss him so much & wish he was here to see little Joseph growing up
Thanks so much ladiesJessica- thanks for sharing that with me. I feel the same way as you that I'm glad he no longer has to suffer, and then the selfish part of me just wants him back you know. It's also difficult becuase now my grandma is in the spot where your grandpa was- she's lonely and sick- and it's difficult to keep her spirits raised- but I know she'll pull through.Frau- I'm so sorry. I know that must be difficult wanting him to see Joseph and to have Joseph know him. I hope your pain lessens
I'm so sorry. I know exactly how you feel. I'm thinking of you.
*HUGE* hugs! I know how much love one can have for her Papa, and I know that this is still hard for you. Just know that he's looking down on you, and he is so, so proud of all that you've accomplished!
