Grandad


I've been putting a brave face on things for a while, Grandad has been poorly and was diagnosed with Lung Cancer on my birthday. He was due to return home yesterday, all the special things he needed had been organised and delivered and my sister, neice and John & I planned to drive to Devon today so we could spend some time with him, but sadly Grandad didn't make it home. My wonderful Grandad passed away yesterday, aged 79.

Rest in Peace Grandad, I love you very much xxx

I'm ever so sorry to hear about your Grandad. My grandad died a few years ago, he did not make it home either! My Nan & Grandad had just moved to a new house, my grandad had made sure that every room was decorated and they had gone and bought all new furniture. He must of known his time was up!

Don't be too sad, he would not want you to be, I'm sure!

What a tragedy for all of you. I feel so sorry. But for your Grandad think how much better it is to have passed quickly without enduring months and months of suffering and deterioration. So horrid for everyone left behind though. My thoughts are with you and your family. Lucy xxx
