Today I came home from school, everything was good in the world then the phone rang. It was my uncle, at first I thought he was just checking up on us, to see how our travel plans were because me and my dad were planing to go to Switzerland for my Nono's birthday however it was not the case. My uncle called us to tell us that Nono had past away 2 hours ago. At first I didn't believe it, then the message started to sink in and I teared up.

My Nono was not the most paternal of grandparents. My family always joked that he would out live us all, it was not because he was spiteful he just was really old. Even though Nono was not as I said paternal I still love him. It feels like a quarter of me has died well it has metaphorically because in genetics you are 50% of each of you parents therefore 25% your grandparents. I feel sad I will never be able to see him again even worse is that I was going to him this weekend I was so close to seeing him.

I miss him already.
