Grief - holo_daxy
I meant to update my LJ last weekend but my granddad was taken into hospital and we spent the week waiting for news. My parents just phoned me and told me that he died peacefully this morning. It's good, because he wasn't really him any more; Alzheimer's had gradually eroded the man I grew up with and he was practically housebound, which for a man who'd always enjoyed his sport was akin to torture. So I'm glad he's not suffering any more, but I'm still sad. Although he was a selfish man, he was always loving and kind towards me and until my cousin Jack was born, I was his favourite grandchild. My dad's father died when he was 11 so my granddad was the only grandfather I had growing up (but I had 3 grandmothers - my mother's mother, my mother's stepmother and my father's mother) and now I won't have that again (unless I find a partner with a living grandparent).

I'm postponing my life update for a little while but I will be back.

I'm so sorry for your loss. hugs hugs hugs!!!

(really... you're the third person I know with sick/dying grand parents :s And my grand mother was diagnosed with cancer yesterday. I'm waiting for more news now... )

Thank you so much, cherie. And I'm sorry to hear about your grandma. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I'm so sorry for your loss. ♥

Darling, my condolences. *hugs*
Let me know if there's anything I can do.
