Thinking of you always.

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.

  1. Balling. I love you so much!!!! I get that we are experiencing this at the same time but it also allows me a bestie who understands and I could probably just look at and would completely understand. Sending so much love ❤️
