Goodbye

My grandfather passed away this morning, the day after his 85th birthday. I called yesterday and the nurse told me he couldn't talk because of the oxygen mask but she held the phone up to his ear. I wished him happy birthday and told him I loved him. And he said thank you.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost both my grandparents around the same time and I miss them all the time. He sounded very polite. :)

I'm so sorry for your loss. If there's anything you need, I know I'm far away, but don't hesitate to ask.

I just came upon your blog from google reader, and I want to say that you are one of the first people (in art and design-type blogs) to ever post something so serious and emotional, and it really surprised me! These blogs must be escapes for people, and it leads to often really superficial kinds of postings, so I appreciate your honesty- and can feel for your loss even though I don't know you at all. Best wishes

I am so sorry to hear of your grandfather's passing. I hope he was partying it up during 5 de Mayo up in the blue sky.
