Grandpa truly missed.

by Laura A
(England, Kent. )

My grandpa passed away exactly seven months ago today. The day it happened, it was like i knew. I got to college and said to my friend that i really wanted to be with my family. I felt quite ill and couldn't concentrate at college, so i went home at 12ish. When i got in.. my dad broke the news to me. We both burst into tears and he hugged me. It's weird that i felt like that because i never say i want to be at home with my parents. Seven months later and i still miss him more than ever. He had dementia for a good few years but i always expected him to never give up. Every time i went to see him i'd clutch his hand and sit with him the whole time we were at his while everyone would be downstairs. He didn't always wake up but i'd still sit there watching him sleep. When i kissed him goodbye he'd always smile and say thanks for seeing him. I miss seeing his smile.. i miss holding his hand. Most of all i miss him calling me beautiful. i never get compliments he was the only one that ever said nice things about me. November 4th 2011 was the worst day of my life, the day i lost my grandpa, a hard working, well educated man. It breaks my heart every day and i cry at least once a week still. I had a picture of him right next to my bed on my wall.
