Heartbroken

Today has become the saddest day of 2014. My beloved Grampy has passed away. On Monday he collapsed at home and was taken to hospital. He was suffering from pneumonia and was low oxygen. He was given treatment but by Xmas Eve, he was totally confused and really wanted to go home. He took a turn for the worse on Xmas Day but sadly passed away this morning.

He was 90 years old. He died in his sleep. I went to the hospital with my Mum and Dad, but sadly he was gone by the time we arrived. My Aunt and Uncle were already there. I went into bedside and he looked so peaceful, which I am happy about.

I am knocked for six but I knew this was coming. He was an amazing man, fought in the Second World War and was a true gentleman. A few months ago I looked after him when my Aunt and Uncle were away for two weeks. We had a riot! I will always remember the great mash potato microwave explosion of 2014 lol.

Rest well Gramps - Love you forever xx

I hope you don't mind me posting this here but I need to get it off my chest.

    We all have to die as death and taxes are the only thing we can be sure of. So it

    Wasn't unexpected at 90. Remember the good times and he will live on in spirit

  • so sorry for your loss.. I still remember the pain when my dear grand father crossed over and that was thirty years ago now.. I am a spiritualist so do not believe that people just stop.. his old physical body might had gone but his spirit lives on and he will always be close to you .. like my relatives are.. huge hugs to you xx

  • What lovely memories he has left you with. It's so sad to lose anyone but it seems even more poignant this time of year. What a lovely way to exit though - with your family round you and in your sleep. I think things are done for a reason. I missed my dads passing by minutes. Sometimes the memories of them alive and vibrant are how you are meant to remember them - not a shell of their former self in bed and unwell.

    Much love, and I feel for loss.

    Sue xx

  • My deepest sympathy. Hold on to those wonderful memories.
