Surrounded by family; my mom and aunts chattering away, kids running around playing, pictures being passed around, a great grandmother who looks just like one aunt, one cousin uploading videos, another writing away summing up the life of the amazing man who was our grandpa, supportive husbands, my brother going through your wallet for membership cards, and me sitting in the middle of it taking it all in.
Friday, April 14th, a light went out in our family. My grandpa passed away peacefully in his home, in his bed just the way he wanted. Shock still gripped me when the news came to me and I've slowly gathered myself to help my family out.
I don't do well with opening up about my life and prefer to not have the focus on me but I felt I should share some of the thoughts I have had.
I feel blissed to be around the crazy family I have.
