Us against the world.

Today is August 10,2009.

My granddaddy died last night at 9 o clock.
When I was born I was a premature. My mommy and daddy thought I wasn't gonna make it.

Granddaddy came to see me one time, took a long look at me and said she's gonna make it, she'll be alright. He was right.

I did make it. I still and will always love him.
My title is "Us against the world" because it's something Grandaddy used to say to my Nana and Daddy before any of us were born. Us being my four brothers and I.

I only hope that he's safe and happy. My granddaddy survived a two heart attacks, one time his heart stopped, plus a stroke, and Hospice. He survived it all.

I'm very proud of him.

Sorry your Granddaddy died last night
by: Lynne from Australia

Hi Shayna,

It is sad that your Granddaddy died last night, but you have lots of lovely memories of the time you spent with him. He sounds like a really lovely man and you were so lucky to have him. He will always be in your heart and your memories. Nothing can change that. Lynne
