    My Grandpa died today, so I have to fly back to Indiana. I haven't seen my family in 2 years. It's not going to be fun.

    I guess that's life, that's what all the people say....

    I was asked to be a pall bearer. I'm the oldest Grandchild out of 9. My Grandpa had 6 kids, my dad being the oldest. It's going to be really hard to keep it together.

    I was close to my grandpa too when he passed. I'm sure you have alot of good memories of him. Because of that he never really leaves. It sounds corny, but its true.

    This may sound harsh, but count your blessings and all you did have with your Grandpa. My Mom's parents died when she was 18 and 26, WAY before I was even conceived. My Dad's Mom died when he was young from multiple myloma, a test he has to have done now. My Dad's father passed away when I was two.

    One thing that would help is to ask if you write a letter, if it could be read at the service for you or practice it so you can read it for the family on how you felt about him.

    I NEVER would have thought about writing a letter, I couldn't bear hearing it...It's a good idea...I hate talking.

    I never met my dad's dad He died early, before I was born, or maybe just a few days after. I know my other pair of grandparents pretty well.

    I lost both my grandparents on my mom's side before I was old enough to even remember them. And my grandfather on my dad's side was always sick.

    I really only had my grandmother and I have lots of fond memories of her. Sadly she had severe Alzheimer's so towards the end she didn't even know who I was and she had forgotten everyone in her life except my dad.

    If you were able to get to adulthood and still be in your grandkid's life that is pretty good. While it may hurt you terribly that he is gone imagine how all your cousins will feel who are young and never got a chance to know him.

    I am sorry to hear about your loss. Just remember the good times you had with your Grandfather, that should help you through this tough time.
