Now, now, before everyone goes all crazy with how sorry they are, do keep in mind, unless you killed him, there is nothing for you to apologize about :D
At about 2204, I found out that my grandfather (mom) had passed on at 1100. In classic Maddian fashion, I already had two VM from my mother, one from 1405 and another 1903, of which I did not get around checking to. I was telling myself, mother was wishing me a belated Father's Day (first call), then grandpa was in the hospital again. I would later find out the actual issue. At first, I took it... well... I say okay, in that I took a call afterwards. I started to lose after the next call, to the point of breaking down and crying. I composed myself, and took my next call. Someone forgot to pay their bill. After taking care of her, I realized it was time for me to go home.
I was close to Grandpa for some time. That declined as it has with almost all of my family, minus my father, due to everyone being far away from me with little contact. Father would call and keep in contact, making him the exception. Still, there was plenty of time with grandpa. He liked to golf, so I imagine he is golfing with Grandma about now. It is difficult to say, as she might have to wait for him finishing fishing. Of course, being Heaven, I imagine he is doing both at the same time.
Of everyone, I am sure my mother is hit the worse. My heart goes out to her and I ask God to look out after her. Also, my sister appears to have gotten closer to Grandpa of late. When you add the closeness of my family, then you have a large mess of a lot of emotional people who are sad about it.
So, Grandpa, I love you, and am glad God is watching out for you. I am doing much better now, in better spirits even though I have some other issues I am currently dealing with(personal...) It helps to know that he is not suffering anymore. Take care, Grandpa.
-Love, oldest grandson
