I would use at least some of the money to buy something that you will have forever, your wedding band, some special jewelry that you can wear for the wedding as well as afterwards, something like that. That way you have something that is from your grandfather that you’ll have forever. Because even though its not rational to think he’s going away as you spend the money, people aren’t rational, not completely. We’re emotional and we feel what we feel. You feel that he’s going away as you spend his money, so rather than not spend it, spend it on something that won’t go away.

Think of it as your grandpa contributing to one of the most important days in your life through your mom. He won’t be there physically, but he will certainly be there in spirit.

Hope you feel better.

I agree with using some of the money to buy something that you will have for ever. Something that you can pass down to your children.

I’d also find a special way to remember him on your wedding day. The wedding you will have is possible because of him, so making note of that so that might be helpful for you to come to terms with the wedding costs and spending the money from your grandfather. Maybe there is a reading or tradition that you could incorporate into the wedding to remember and honor him.
