My great grandpa died a year ago
He was wonderful, at 96 we all knew the time would come soon but not that soon. He got sick and within a week he was gone. It is painful. I never got to say goodbye and how much I loved him, I held onto everything, from birthday cards to baby blankets, and when he passed away I retrieved everything and looked at them. I found a card from when I was born saying "best wishes to you and that little dear, who'll bring you much happiness year after year!" I love this and it makes me cry everytime. Just hold onto those small things because someday they will bring you great memories.
