A big huge hug to all of you for your thoughts and prayers. We got a phone call yesterday afternoon that Jon’s sweet grandpa had passed away.
We both stopped working for the day and went off to grandma’s house to check on her. She’s handling things as well as can be expected. At times she is okay and you can even get a smile out of her, but just as quickly it can turn to her sobbing that, “he’s gone.” Over and over again. She was the only boy she ever dated, her one true love so it’s understandable that she is so upset.
Plans have been made, family is coming in from around the US and wakes will take place Thursday evening, Friday afternoon and evening with the funeral on Saturday.
I’m taking the rest of the week off. I feel insanely guilty about not posting or commenting this week, but then again I feel insanely guilty going on like nothing has happened. So I think it’s best that I take a couple days off and throw myself into helping out however I can with Jon’s grandma.
If you need me I’ll be checking my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
