The world lost a very special man today and I lost my Pappy. I'm devastated over the loss of my beloved grandfather. He hasn't been doing well the last few months. He had a stroke in March that he just never quite recovered from. I know he is at peace now and in a better place and is happy but I can't help but be sad. This man was the head of our family. He was such an amazing person and I'm so upset that I'll never get to see his smile again or hear his bellowing laugh. I won't get to laugh at one of his many jokes (usually fart related) or give him a hug (especially when he pretended to hate them). I miss him so much and I wish I had family who lived closer to me so I could be with them right now. I just need a hug. Sorry for posting such a sad blog but I needed to get it out.

    Sorry for your loss.
Its most difficult for those left behind.
Find ways to remember him and incorporate something he said into your vocabulary, tell one of his stories, do something he'd enjoy doing.

That way he will live on in your words and actions.

Namaste

    Oh Tracey, I am so very sorry. Know that it is ok to be sad, it's ok to get it out and it's ok if it last more than 1 day. A life that has been lived to it's fullest potential deserves to be honored in memory and in actions until you are ready to move on!

I think it is so awesome that you got to have your Pappy for your childhood! Lots of people don't get to have that type of relationship ... You are so very blessed to have lots of memories to treasure ... emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am so sorry to hear of the loss. I pray that you'll be able to look back on his life with fond memories. In the meantime, I'm thinking of you while you grieve. I know it's not much, but often it's enough to know others care while you are hurting.
