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. ;)

I'm sorry. Though, it being Alzheimer's, is this one of those "I'm sad but also a little relieved he's at peace," times for you?

In any case, hugs from me to you.

It's definitely one of those times. The Alzheimer's really made him move out long before his body was ready to move on. It's my grandmother I feel worst for; she's one of those ladies that moved from her father's house to her husband's and hasn't ever really been on her own. Fortunately most of her kids live close by, and she'll be fine in the long run. :)

Thank you for the hugs!

I'm so sorry. My grandmother passed many years ago, also from Alzheimer's, and it was a long goodbye.

Strength, love, and hugs to you all.

I know what you're going through - my grandmother died of Alzheimer's, and mom's got the beginning signs of it, although she refuses to admit it!

HUMONGUS HUGS!!!!! Hang in there, ok?

My condolences to you. It's also shocking to see that your grandfather was four years younger than my mother, who died in September!

Good luck to you. I can tell you were close.

While you are in your home state, you can snuggle up more with your new nephew! He'll be much bigger now and you won't believe it's the same baby!

So sorry for the passing of your grandfather. So sorry for your family.
