Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

an update @ 08:30 am

I woke up last night at 12:25. My Grandpa passed away last night sometime in the evening. I really am happy for him because I know he's much more peaceful now. He left peacefully oo which we're all thankful for, but its still hard to deal with him just not being there anymore.

So now, we're dealing with the mechanics of getting to Arizona. Seems to be different than it was when my uncle died suddenly, and I don't know what it was likewhen my other Grandpa died when I was young, but it really is different when someone you love in your family dies and you're expecting, and his case, hoping for it. He didn't want to live in his weakened condition, and I didn't want that either. I'm just thankful for the time we spent with him not long ago.

THanks to all of the comments, thoughts, and prayers you guys have been sending. Keep em coming, I'll read them eventually, and evn if I don't respond, know I do read and appreciate them all.

Sorry to hear of your grandpa's death. I hope you are comforted by the thoughts that he is at peace now and won't have to suffer in that weak state any more. I am so glad you decided to go visit him a while back, even though you were in much pain from your leg. Please give my condolences to your family.

Hi Ner. I'm sorry I got a bit behind on reading my friends' journals (you can blame Stephen King for that, hahaha), but I did want to send off this short note to express my condolences to you and your family on your grandfather's death. I'm so glad you got to see him that last time and I'm also glad his suffering is finally over, but I also know how the grieving process sucks sometimes. Again, I'm so sorry. I think I can speak for everyone on your Friends list in saying that we're all here for you.
