I'll love you forever, I'll love you for always; as long as I'm living my Grandpa you'll be!!!
For those of you that don't know, my grandpa passed away yesterday, August 29, 2010, at around 4 am. He went peacefully in his sleep. I wish I could say that he didn't have to suffer, but that would be a lie. As hard as it was to watch him suffer and be in pain I am glad that I was there to help. I wouldn't have traded it for the world! It is amazing what you will do for those that you love! I have had the chance the last couple of days to just be able to sit up in his room with him, I was able to give him water when he wanted it and I was able to give him a good night kiss and tell him how much I love him! On Friday night, he told me, "I love you sweetheart", and I really think that was one of the last things that he ever said. It meant so much to me! I have always been a grandpa's girl, and I think I will always be one! And on Saturday morning, I went to check on him and I gave him a kiss and he smiled for me, I was able to express my love for him and tell him that I will always be my grandpa's girl.
I am so grateful for the Gospel and the Plan of Salvation! I am so glad that I get to be with my Grandpa and my Grandma again! I am grateful for eternal families! I am so grateful for the family that I have and the love that I have for them! I don't know where I would be without them! I am grateful that my grandparents raised such a wonderful daughter, my mom. I am so blessed to have my mom! She is a wonderful person! And I want to strive to live as how my Grandpa would want me to live! I am so grateful for his testimony and what a wonderful person he was! I will never forget him or his love for others! I love my Grandpa so much! I know that I will miss him so much, but I can't wait until the day that I get to see him again and where we will get to do all the fun things that we used to do! I love you Grandpa!!!
