A Somber Day

There is no excuse for me not blogging since Wednesday. I was tired.
Today is not to be not a usual blog......

Yesterday morning 6am one of my family members past away. :(
It was my Grandfather. 89 years young.He past in his sleep I was told. He did not want any viewing or any fuss made over him. So I will miss him dearly.He was the Father figure I had growing up and he was there for everything.All my band concerts ,my kids. He bonded with my son and they had a great relationship. My Aunt to care of him as he had got older,and needed help. No nursing home. The last time I was able to see him was last year this time and he had slowed down, but he was aware of all of us and everything going on.

Now he will be able to rest in peace.

Blog later.......

Hi Rae,

My condolences on the passing of your Grandfather. From your brief discription of him, it sounds as if he took a great interest in you, and loved both you and your family.

May you find comfort as you look back on old memories.
