It's not sudden or a surprise, but my grandfather passed away this morning. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a few years ago but really took a turn for the worse right about Thanksgiving. I got to say goodbye to him when I was out there earlier this month, which I'm grateful for. I should be able to fly back for the funeral and to spend a little time with my family; I wasn't hoping to see them quite so soon but at least I don't think they're sick of me yet. ;)
Thank you for all the kind words in the wake of my grandpa's death. My LJ-peeps are the best!

I'm flying out tomorrow and we'll be having the service on Saturday. I'm making the most of my airfare and spending about a week with my family. Hey, I've got the PTO saved up, might as well. I feel bad that I'm leaving Ron all alone for that long -- usually it's him that goes on the week-long excursions without me. I'm sure he'll manage though, even if he has to ring in the new year without me.
