In the middle of the night he passed away in his sleep. He was a very big part of my family’s life. He had been diagnosed with stomach cancer about a month ago and the doctor thought he’d live for a lot longer. Now that he’s gone he will truly be missed by all. What is really hard though is my grandma passed away last year and now that he’s gone as well, I am very sad that neither of them will get to see their eldest grandchild get married. I am planning on having a memorial candle at the service but I just wish they were still here to see my big day.

I’m so very very sorry for your loss. I was super close to my grandpa, and he was killed a couple of years ago in a car accident. I still think of him every day. You just have to think that him and your grandma are together and happy now 🙂
I think the memorial candle is a great way to remember him. I’m also doing a bouquet charm which I love the idea of 🙂
Either way, they will be there, I’m sure. Don’t doubt that 🙂

*hugs* I am so sorry! I thought a lot about my grandparents on my wedding day – all 4 of mine have passed. it actually put a smile on my face rather than make me sad.

Wow, I am so sorry.
I think it’s beautiful that you are going to include him in your ceremony.

(((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))) I’m so sorry honey. It’s not easy to lose a grandparent. Know that he’s happy for you and will be in your heart on your wedding day. I think the memorial candle is a great idea.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Just know that both of your grandparents will be at your wedding…just not in the capacity that you had hoped. Just know that they both would have been so proud and happy for you.

thanks bees! I spent most of the week by his side along with my FI and we did tell him all about our plans for the wedding day and he said it sure sounds lovely and im so proud of u and I love you very much. Just thinking of all that stuff though gets me really emotional. this is going to be hard on us planning a wedding missing him…
