The Sun will Set for You

I received some bad news yesterday morning. My grandfather passed away after a long battle with many health related issues. This man lived a life full of struggles and triumphs. He was nothing more than a big teddy bear with a bit of attitude on the side. His wife, my Nana, was his life and she took care of him every step of the way until the end. Their marriage was not perfect by no means, but it stood the test of time and they never stopped loving each other. I was fortunate to see my grandfather last summer and to hang out and laugh like we used too. I remember spending my last summer with him and nana  before I went into the Marine Corps. It is one of the best summers that I will never forget. He knew how to make you laugh, even if it was at his corny jokes. He also knew exactly how to push your buttons just to get you going. I talked to him on Christmas day and he was his old self, laughing and enjoying the big meal and family and friends.

My mom and dad are in Denver now and will be saying goodbye this Sunday, as for us grandkids, we will be planning a big get together in Denver in a couple of months. It will be more or less a time spent with Nana to look back and remember the life he lived. He will be deeply missed and always loved.

I love you Grandpa!!!!!!!!!

    I will miss him so much!!! I will miss his jokes and him calling me Little Diane and just that voice on the other end of the phone that always told us how proud he was of us kids! Just cant wrap my head around this..still doesn’t seem real.
