In Loving Memory of my Gramp

Last night, my sweet Gramp passed away peacefully holding my Dad's hand. I am so glad he is now at peace and no longer suffering, but selfishly I will miss him so much. Everyone mourns their grandparents passing, just as I have with my Gram, Granddaddy & Grandmommy when they passed, but Gramp and I had an extremely close and special relationship. I was "his girl", as he often called me and the note he wrote in my birthday card in July summed it all up, but that is a sentiment I will keep to myself. For now.

Although I knew this was coming and although I am still terribly sad, I am still trying my hardest to celebrate his life. Because he lived a really good life. And I find peace knowing Gramp is back with his beloved wife, my Gram.

  1. Rachel, I am so sorry. I know what you're going through and I just want you to know I'm thinking of you.

  2. Sorry to not have read your blog page in quite awhile. Was so saddened to read of your beloved grandpa passing away. He lead a long, and at 89 yrs of age, a very full life. We should all do as well as he did. You will have to comfort you, many happy and joyful memories to always remind you of him and his love. Love, Grandma
