Today I found out that a wonderful man passed away this morning. I considered him my grandpa even though we were not related by blood. He was my ex-step mother’s father. I still consider my ex-step mom a real mom. She took care of me and I love her more than life itself.
My grandpa lost his wife not too long ago and he pretty much gave up with out her and I don’t blame him though he will be missed. My grandpa was a good man and a sweet man. He used to take me to the flea market on the weekends when I was a kid. I lived with him when I was little and those were some of the happiest days of my life.
He started to lose his memory but I spoke to him on the phone a few weeks back and he remembered me but he could not remember what I looked like. He wanted me to come visit him and he wanted to meet my kids. I wish more than anything I could have seen him once more. I respected him very much and the world is missing out with out him in it but he is in a better place and I know I will see him again one day.
Rest In Peace grandpa – you were so loved.
Here is a very nice poem
I shall see you again
In heaven where the stars stay.
I will be there one day.
The world isn’t the same,
Since the day the angels came.
You maybe on a star,
But I love you wherever you are.
My stays with you are long past.
They’re right. Fun never lasts.
We worked hard in the garden and workshop.
Side-by-side, we never stopped.
I never played with a girly toy.
I was with you, a tomboy.
You changed who I am today,
A debt I can ever repay.
Know that in my heart you’re alive
Until the day, in heaven, I arrive.
You’re in the hearts of all you touch.
We still love you very much.
