Live | Love | Laugh

Life* Available for a limited time only.

This Thanksgiving weekend my grandfather took his last breath. We knew it would happen one day and given his health, we feared it could be soon, but was never really prepared for when it did. It took a whole day for it to sink in and I had to keep telling myself, he’s gone, he’s really gone. Struggling to find the words to express how I feel, what I feel..Letting go is hard.

If I had know that when I saw him a year ago that that was to be the last time, I would have hugged him goodbye longer, spent more time with him, taken  pictures of him.  I try to find comfort in believing he is in a better place, and not suffering anymore. He was an amazing grandfather and father, an award-winning surgeon, a wonderful spirit but most of all a very loving husband to my grandmother. One of those love-stories that make you tear up in a” The Notebook” kind-of-way and  made your heart warn and fuzzy.

I am grateful for all the time we did spend together. His presence will be missed but he will forever be in our hearts with his love shining down on us. This holiday season I am going to celebrate his life, love and the countless smiles he brought to our faces. Wishing where ever he is, he is at peace.

So for the holidays my message to you, my friends, is spend as much time as you can with your loved ones. Tell them over and over again how much you love them. Make every minute count. Create memories that will forever brighten your day. xo
