My grandfather passed away suddenly Sunday night and the services are Friday and Saturday.
A week ago I was excited about the possibility of seeing the orange and white game this weekend. Now I'm sitting here stunned, that my childhood has been whisked away. I didn't see him a lot over the years as I got older, I was actually going to see him this summer as a vacation with my girlfriend. She has never met him before and it was going to be special because this is the girl I'm spending the rest of my life with, but now it's all gone...I've never done death well, I get really overwhelmed and this one hits really hard...Prayers for me and my family as we go through this tough time...The one thing my grandfather used to tell me every time I went to see him was that he would walk us out to our car and as we pulled out of the driveway he would say, " Papaw loves you buddy, Papaw loves you." Today I would give anything to hear that one more time...I love you too Papaw, I'll see you soon...
Praying for ya buddy. Losing anyone is hard but I miss my grandma a lot. They can have big influences on a child. Praying for comfort thru this difficult time
Prayers that God may send you and your family strength and comfort that only He can provide.
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Talon. Losing someone is a horrible thing that we ALL have to deal with. The only solace I can offer is he is your Grandfather, so he had the benefit to watch your Father or Mother grow up and he was able to experience the joy of having a grandson (you).
Try to focus on the celebration of the great times you did spend together and remember him as you always have.
I don't know you, but I do certainly feel for you and your family and wish you all the best at your time of need.
Keep your head up.
There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction. - Winston Churchill
My grandpa has been gone 32 years. Still miss him. Hang in there.
Prayer sent for you and your family.
Funeral Service is tonight, can't thank you enough for your prayers guys. Keep praying for me tonight and tomorrow morning, you guys are truly family and that's what separates this board from any other one.
My Mamaw suddenly passed away because of a stroke 2 weeks ago after battling cancer and completing chemo, then breaking her knee. The good thing is that as much as she's suffered, she is pain-free. It's tough, it sucks, but friends and family will help get you through it. I know you know that I'm just a phone call away, so don't hesitate.
Talon, I pray for you to have peace. I know what it's like because my papaw was my best bud. Remember God loves you!
