Rest In Peace Grandpa

12:27 AM


I would normally hold out on this post until "Saturdays with Stef" But today my heart is heavy and my body feels numb.

My grandpa passed away yesterday at 10:05 PM...on my lucky number 13 and the day before my Aunts birthday. We had left the hospital around 9:30 pm and around 10 ish my mom held him and told him its okay to go to heaven now...and he did. He just needed the approval. My grandpa was a GREAT man. To me at least...He was funny, smart, witty, charming, strong, everything a DAD should be. He PROTECTED ME and I know, the man I am gonna be with the rest of my life NEEDS to fulfill those qualities.

Grandpa, I love you. EVERY ounce in my mind, body and soul love you. I know your my angel now and I cant wait to join you in heaven. You are such an amazing man and I am so honored to have you as my grandpa.

LOVE YOU!!!

Oh, Sis! Every time I read your words about your Grandfather, I am a crying puddle of tears. Do you know that my Grandpa needed his daughter's permission to go to heaven, too? He waited until we were all gone...and just my aunt was left with him and told him it was okay...that he could go now and that we would always love him. You have reminded me how precious life is, again. God bless you and your Grandfather in heaven. Much, much, love.

I'm very sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to you. As I read your blog I couldn’t help to feel this pain in my stomach which reminds me of those I have lost. Time does help to heal some of the pain but honestly it never does completely mends. So it’s best to just keep all those good memories alive and remember that they are in a better place.

My condolences, my grandma passed away nearly a year ago now. I know the first week or so I was just walking around in a daze. The pain eventually fades but the good memories are there forever. My prayers go to you and your family.

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that hun. Te entiendo, my grandpa passed away last September, and although I was really close to him, I don't think I was as close as you were with yours because my grandpa lived in Mexico. If there's one thing I miss though, is hearing his voice. No matter what, he was always happy to hear my voice; he always wanted to talk to me a little longer and I definitely miss hearing him say, "Yo la quiero mucho a mijita." Ah my grandpa, I'm getting teary eyed just writing about it. My heart goes out to you love. Take care.
