My grandfather passed away last night. Things might be a bit quiet around here while I spend time with my family in this difficult time. For now I'll leave you with a song and an illustration I made recently that I could easily say was my sub-conscience forseeing things, but regardless of that being true it strikes me as a visual representation of my grandfather's passing.
My grandfather was a stoic, sweet, quiet, gentleman who kept smiling his big old smile through his entire ordeal after the stroke, up until the last few hours before his passing when things got extra rough. As horrible as it was to witness him in such a state, I am so thankful for how amazing our family is for coming together and for having been there by his side until the very end. I am thankful that I was able to hold his hand through it all and tell him I loved him. I am thankful that those who couldn't be there are still here to support each other. I am thankful that I had such a fantastic man in my life. But most of all I am thankful that he is now in peace and in a better place, wherever that may be.
Jeg elsker dig Farfar, I love you.
