Saying Goodbye.Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Since my grandfather was transferred to hospice about 3 weeks ago and especially since learning of his passing last Wednesday morning, I have had this running dialogue in my head of what I would write in his memory. I wanted to document something, keep a record of the thirty one years I've had him in my life. The countless holidays, weekends, Sunday dinners, and summer vacations I spent with him. All the good stuff just rolled into one well thought out and poignantly said post, but that has proven itself harder as the days pass to put all of those memories and thoughts into words to honor him. I wish I had sat and wrote before the funeral because now thinking of him seems to leave more of a hole than it did when I was nostalgic about his life with us as it was coming to an end, but I'll do my best and hope you'll bare with me.
