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.

My great grandpa died a year ago
by: Doreen UK

You have been blessed to have a great grandfather live to a good age. No one wants good-bye's. I didn't say good-bye to my husband when he died of cancer. I had 3yrs. to say it but I was in denial waiting for a miracle of healing. But I don't feel sad at all because I don't like good-bye's. I have a Faith in which I believe I will see him again so I say "See you in the morning." I focus on this and look forward in eager anticipation for that day to come. But no use not living till then. Life goes on. But grief has a process and we do go through it and in time we Heal.
