Amid the wonderful things happening in our lives right now, over the past week our family has also experienced a rash of sadness.I am saddened to say that my grandfather passed away on Saturday. This past week has been a whirlwind as I made numerous trips to go see him, but am extremely grateful to have been able to spend time with him prior to those few final hours. He was 98 years old and led a wonderful and fulfilling life, and although, his passing was not unexpected, it’s not easy nonetheless. He was a very special person to me, my entire family and everyone he met.
In addition to my grandfather’s passing, my grandmother is currently in a very ill state as well. She too is in her 90s. I was able to spend some time with her yesterday and at this point, all we can do is hope, pray and keep her as comfortable as possible as her fate is out of our hands.
Family is everything to me. I pride myself in saying that I am a family oriented person. I am close to my family, and each and everyone of them means a great deal to me. I enjoy their company and we try to get together as often as possible. Those my favorite way to spend my weekends as many wonderful memories are made during those times – memories that will last a lifetime. Therefore, to say that this has been a difficult time in our lives is an understatement. I never would have thought that two of my grandparents would be so gravely ill at the same time. My thoughts and emotions on this situation go deep, but it’s not something I wish to convey at this time (and probably never will). I’ll just close in saying that my family needs me right now and I need time to grieve, so EGBG is going to be silent for a time until will get through this rough patch.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and I’ll see you soon.
