I’m so sorry for your loss. It must be so bittersweet to be so happy and also so sad. But I think you are probably right about your grandfather feeling relief at knowing you are in good hands. It let him let go.

Congratulations on your engagement. Your grandfather is smiing, somewhere.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I know in this time there isn’t really anything anyone can say to ease your mind, and that’s ok. Experience your loss, and greive however you feel necessary.

But, I truely believe in what you said that your grandfather left this earth when he did after knowing that you will be taken care of. Regardless of you not being able to physically tell him, I believe the universe works in special ways, and he knew.

It’s amazing that you were able to get that photo with him and you in your wedding dress. You should have it framed and displayed on your wedding day.

Sorry for your loss.  It’s so nice that you got pictures with him while wearing your dress.  He must’ve been beaming with pride and is certainly celebrating now with your parents and loved ones.

Your dress is amazing. and Hawaii?! Awesome! I am so sorry about your grandpa, but you are so right and so wise beyond your years; he knew you didnt need him to take care of you anymore. It is hard not to want him here, obviously. Praying for you.

ksn1219:  I am really sorry for your loss. It sounds as if you and your Grandpa had a very special bond. It can’t be easy to deal with that.

However, I think you’re right that he tried to hold on until he knew you were in good hands and wouldn’t be completely alone. And you still have a bunch of wonderful memories to remember him by – not to mention that beautiful picture of you wearing your dress. 🙂

Congratulations are on your engagement. I hope the next years are your life are full of joy. You deserve it. I have to say I am completely in awe of how strong of a person you are. I lost my dad when I was 26 three years ago unexpectedly. I know how hard it is to lose a parent. I cannot imagine losing both, and then your grandfather, and being as put together as you are. I believe that though they are no longer with you on Earth, they must be incredibly proud of you.
