I went through a very similar time this January. My grandpa was 95, and it was his time, but that doesn’t make it easy. No real advice, since I’m in the same sad boat, but sending internet hugs and good thoughts

I’m so sorry for your loss.  He sounds like a wonderful man.  I’ve gone through my own rough times recently too.  There really is nothing anyone can say to make it better, but I hope you find some solace in the community here.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

MrsTeasandkeys:  I’m so sorry for your loss. Many, many *hugs* your way! Your grandfather sounds like a really amazing man, I’m so glad you got to tell him you were pregnant and to have that moment with him. He had a long life and a great one from what you wrote, I’m sure he’s now in a really great place together with your grandmother and all the people he helped. 

He’s also in good company. Today would have been my friend’s birthday, he died of cancer 5 years ago when he was just 29. I still miss him every day but the pain becomes more bearable after a while. Him and your grandfather are now watching over us, I’m sure. Stay strong, more *hugs*

My grandma passed away today :(. 95 years old. I didn’t even know she was in that bad of shape…apparently hospice care had started (she lived with my aunt), but my parents didn’t tell me because they didn’t want to worry me. There will be a service but it hasn’t been scheduled yet, and I’m really antsy because I want to fly home for the service, but depending on what day it is we can afford it…or not. It’s either $300 or $700. which is stupid. and my cousins once removed (so my grandma was their great grandma) have been posting all these attention-seeking posts of FB and I’m just sick of it.

<br />And I’m really sad I have no living grandparents, and that I won’t have any at our wedding. It sucks.

StL.Ashley:  Sorry for your loss. I hope you can attend the service.  My g-ma got sick and was in hospital.  When I called, the girl did not let me speak to her. She died before I could reach her. At first I was hurt over the situation, but time really does heal sorrows.

I’m so so sorry! He sounds like an amazing man. I think it’s nice that your family is honoring his wish not to have a funeral. But I would encourage you to do something symbolic to say goodbye to him. Maybe visit someplace that he liked or take a hike with your husband and just give a nice toast to him at dinner. But something for you to say how much you love and appreciated him.

MrsTeasandkeys:  I’m sorry for your loss as well…sorry for not saying that first. I’m just really…sad. Ugh.

beemyname:  That’s so sad 🙁 My dad was on the way over the my aunt’s house to visit with my grandma (his mom) and called her to say “I’m on the way” and talked to my grandma. Then my aunt called 30 minutes later when my dad was still en route to say my grandma had passed. I feel so bad for him.
