My grandfather passed away today at the age of 73. He was at church in Puerto Rico when he felt sick and went out to get some air. On his way back in he collapsed. The crazy thing is that the 3rd anniversary of my grandmothers passing is in 5 days. Also he was supposed to be coming home in a couple of weeks. My mom was starting to get everything ready for his arrival, like making a list of groceries to buy and getting his laundry done. I was hoping to work with him on my apartment. I had a bunch of ideas to to run by him and was hoping he would think they were good. I was hoping for a little bonding through home improvement.
My grandfather was a very set-in-his-ways type of guy, but he had a lot of love in his heart. He softened up a lot after my grandmother passed. He always had a sense of humor, but he really didn't show it till after that. Her death was very hard on him because she took so much care of him. He was a little lost for a while, but he seemed to be gaining a sense of normalcy back. He was strong in will and body. I guess thats what really gets me is that he was a healthy guy.
I feel that grandparents are keystones to the family, and now I have none left. At least I know that he is back with grandma, and in the presence of the God that he loved. I'm going to miss him a lot.
Rest in Peace Grandpa.

I'm very sorry to hear the passing of your grandfather, VileSlay. I know it must of been a shock considering it happened out of the blue.
However, just know that he is in a much better place now and he will find peace, and will no longer have to bear the ache now that he is with grandma.
I understand that it's a tough time to go through, my condolences for you and your family.

That's alot how my grandfather was to my grandmother. He took care of her alot and then when he passed away last year, she kinda lost her mind for a bit but eventually regained her sanity.
My condolences go out to you and your family.
thanks for your condolences guys. there's gonna be a lot of sorting out to do and it's gonna be a little rough. he was my grandpa on my mothers side, so my mom is taking it really hard. she freaked out horribly. I don't think I've ever heard a person scream like that outside of a movie or tv show. I'm kinda in a weird limbo, like everything is hollow and I don't know what to do next. I know nothing of what I'm feeling is unique, but it's what I'm feeling. just thought I'd share.
