All mortals are but a breath…
My grandfather will die today. He will say goodbye to all his children, there with him, and go to join his beloved wife in Heaven.
We will miss him. And I will go to visit and be with my family to grieve.
It’s an interesting mix of emotion. On the one hand, I feel like focusing my energy into this moment, this grief. On the other hand, life goes on. I have a paper to write, projects to work on, a wedding to plan. And how do I go over wedding details when my parents are busy grieving and planning a funeral? How are they handling having to sell their house at a time like this? I love my grandpa, my whole family, and I miss them terribly. I want to be there, but at the same time, my life is here. It is very difficult. I am very emotional, and kind of mixed up.
If you pray, please keep my family in your prayers, and if you don’t, please consider us in your daily thoughts. Thanks.
