Goodbye Grandpa

Saturday, November 02, 2013

Grandpa passed away peacefully around midday. He was surrounded by family. He went downhill so quickly. My dad, sadly, didn't make it back from Australia in time.

Grandpa was always so proud of me. I went to uni, got qualified and got a good job. He lived long enough to hear that I was offered a position in Wellington, which made him prouder. I share his love of travel, and his obsession with the USA. He even gave me $10 to go up the Space Needle when I was in Seattle. He saw it built and was one of the first people to go up it.

I'll miss him.
