Not a lot of things have really been going on in the last week or so, so I haven’t really had the desire to write a new post, and it’s summer so I’ve been rather lazy :P, but I started writing one last night and then scrapped it when my mom came in my room this morning and told me that my grandpap had passed away.
It’s not really that much of a shock; I’ve mentioned in previous posts how his health has been declining, and I’m really glad that we went up to visit them over Memorial weekend just to be able to see him. It made me really depressed seeing them like that, but I guess it prepared me for his death some.
I’m not real weepy, I don’t think I’ve even teared up yet, but I am still sad. He was my grandpap and, though I didn’t see him a whole lot, he still means a lot to me. We had a lot of good memories, and it’s hard to think that I will never see him ask my grandma for another peice of pie, or scoop of ice cream, or complain that she doesn’t ever feed him enough. The little things.
My family and I are heading up to Pennsylvania tomorrow since we already had plans for today. It’s Independence Day for those of you living in the USA (happy 4th!), and we’re going to my aunt’s for a barbeque and to swim and just hang out with friends. It will be nice before we have to leave, though it does dampen the spirits a bit.
We really don’t know any of the details as to when the funeral or viewing will be, but we hope that we will have tomorrow as a travel day since it’s such a long drive. I know getting there and seeing everyone will make it so much harder for me, so if you guys could keep me and my family in your thoughts and prayers, it would be greatly appreciated. <3
