Gratitude Journal - My Grandfather

Thank you so much, everyone, for your caring comments.

On Sunday my sister, brother, and I visited my Grandfather.  
We prayed and laughed with him.  
He squeezed our hands.

He passed away peacefully by our sides on Tuesday evening.
The last words he said to us were, "Live your life."  

 What a new thing to feel sadness / relief / rejoicing, 
all at the same time.

"How lucky I am to have something 
that makes saying goodbye so hard."
- A. A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh

Love you, Grandpa J.
You touched so many lives.
See you in Heaven.
