Oh how you are missed.
Though I can feel you all around me, no matter where I go.
I miss your kind spirit and warm laugh.
You are in my mind and in my heart always.
I search for you among the stars and in the vastness of the ocean.
I realize now that this has been much harder for me than I have lead on.
This has changed my life. This is my first true experience with death.
I miss your support and your encouraging words.
I miss our long thoughtful conversations around the dinner table.
The grief comes in waves.
I am struggling to swim today.
In two days we will celebrate the first holiday without you, Gramps.
I am not sure if I have completely accepted that yet, but I am working on it.
I’ve made the choice to honor your life, by fully living mine.
I will forever be grateful for the time we shared together and the valuable life lessons you taught me along the way.
You inspired me to follow my dreams and live a life whole heartedly.
I am so proud to be your granddaughter.
Thinking of you always. Love you forever Gramps.
Until we meet again. You will live forever in me.
