Goodbye Pa.

My grandpa passed away yesterday. And even though it's always been in the back of my mind, that it would happen soon, I am heartbroken. For my Dad, for our family.

He was 95...pretty incredible hey? He wasn't sick, he just closed his eye's and went to sleep. My cousins were with him and spoke to him as he went. My Dad and my Uncle arrived minutes later. I feel so relieved that they were all together.

My mom, sister and myself are heading to PE over the weekend for the funeral, and to spend sometime with the family.

Until we meet again...goodbye Pa...I love you...may you rest in peace.

What a blessing to have such a peaceful passing. It's what I wanted for my dad too, when he 'went' in February. The important thing to remember is that they are never gone from us, are always around us, and there is no need to feel like we can't talk to them, because they're not here anymore, because they are always around, as soon as we think of them.

Sorry for your loss Hayley. He had a good life, I think if I could choose this would be the way I would want to go one day. Just close my eyes and go to sleep.
