Sadness...

I am making this known to all my online friends and I am asking for your prayers and best wishes.

The man who has been like a father to me, my grandfather, is extremely ill. He has been in the hospital since November and we had hoped for a happy return. However, it appears that life is slipping away from him.

I have been somewhat quiet on the net because of him being away. Please forgive me if I'm not around for awhile but this is the reason. I have never had anyone die close to me so I'm not sure how to handle this but he is 90 years old and I just want his soul to be at peace and to know that we love him. I would like to think that he could return home soon but that does not look like the case.

So please, forgive me. I will miss you guys for awhile and I hope to catch up on getting things done whenever I return. Thanks. XOXOX

EDIT: Shortly after posting this, we found out that my grandfather had passed. Thank you all for the warm wishes and words of comfort. More XOXOX

*hugs you*

I've lost a few close ones already. Just celebrate their lives by remembering them fondly and with joy.

*comforts* I've only lost one relative (my grampy), but I was three and had no concept of what had happened at the time. I wish you and your family and especially your ailing grandad all my love. I'm sure he will feel loved and cherished by you, and that will make this difficult time for him bearable. XxX

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. ::hugs:: It's tough when someone so close to you passes away. I've lost grandparents, but we've always live far away, so I never knew them that well. Don't be afraid to take as much time out for yourself as you need. <3

I hug you very tight my dear Cherise.
He is not gone, only his body has surrendered. His spirit lives on, in your heart.
Trust me.
And Bless you and yours.
