30-day blog journal - Day 8

Day 8 - a photo that makes you angry/sad

 My dad and my grandaddy.  

My grandaddy passed away suddenly, and completely unexpectedly on Halloween in 2001.  He was my biggest fan and a best friend.  He was always smiling, always ready with a joke, gracious, giving, kind, loving, sensitive, hilarious, and the best man I've ever known.  I miss him, and it brings me peace to know he's in Heaven with my babies.   "Smile.  Somebody loves you."

My grandpa was similar to yours; he was my biggest fan (I was his favourite grandchild our of 13) and we were best friends. I was always told that I saved his life. He was dying of cancer when I was born. We were in the same hospital. He demanded the nurses bring him to see me. And after holding me ... no word of a lie, he started to get better. He was cancer free from 1984 until 1998.
