The end of his fight.

by Thankful Granddaughter

Today, I got the news that my grandfather lost his battle with heart disease after suffering a major heart attack that he was unable to recover from. I guess you never know how important each and every member or your family is until one of them is gone. I am now lost. How will my grandmother handle this loss? How will my mother? How will I? How will I be able to celebrate holidays without him? These are all thoughts that have crossed my mind over and over today. He was an amazing man, as were all of the grandparents we have loved and lost. However, it is in these dark hours that we must remember the life that was lived by them. What were their accomplishments? How did they touch our lives? It is indeed devastating to have lost them, but even more so if we continue to grieve. Instead, we must see the good and thank God for having been blessed with them in your life. I am struggling with this right now, but I know that Grandpa will be up in heaven watching the Packers win the Superbowl on God's enormous HDTV with his brother and friends of years past. His body has failed him, but the spirit that we have loved since the moment we met him will continue to touch our lives.

So sorry!
by: Cindy

I am so sorry for you, losing your grandpa. I lost my husband two months ago from a heart attack, not even knowing he had heart problems. His arteries were blocked and we had no idea. He was so healthy and took care of himself. Never smoked and jogged. My heart is just broken and so very lost in this world and I know your grandma will be too. I would have been married to my sweet Rusty 35 years on February 7th. It is going to be so difficult for me not having him here this year. He was a wonderful man and we had a beautiful marriage. My prayers are with you and your family and know that this grief is so very painful. I miss the love of my life!
