Tonight I'm feeling angry about life.

Why does my Grandpa have to suffer like this? Why couldn't he pass in his sleep or something peaceful? He doesn't deserve to have his last weeks/months end this way. Its not fair. Good people suffer all the time, but that doesn't mean I am ok with it. I'm not ok with it. Especially when its my Grandpa, and by extension, my Grammy and my Mom and my Aunts and my siblings and cousins and everyone who knows and loves my Grandpa. You can't know him without loving him. He's really special that way.

"Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake."

-Victor Hugo-

I'm with you on this 100% Kristi. I feel like a big part of me is being ripped away and I can't hold on to it no matter how I try. Its just not right that he has to go through all this, and by extension the rest of the family. I'm going to bed, otherwise I'll just keep crying.

"There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than 10,000 tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contribution and of unspeakable love."
~Washington Irving

Thinking of you, Kristi. Wishing your grandpa and your whole family peace.
