You will be missed Poppy

Yesterday afternoon, 3 days after his 81st birthday, my grandfather passed away.  He was an amazing person and a superb grandfather.  I loved him terribly so and will miss him beyond words can express.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to fly home to NJ for the services.  I currently have tickets to head there for mid-April, but to change or buy new tickets it would cost 2000-3000 dollars (for 2 tickets) and that was with the bereavement prices.  And that is just not going to happen.

I know he would understand and that gives me comfort.  The world is a little less beautiful without him. I didn't get to say goodbye, but I will just do it in my own way privately (and I guess a little with this blog post).

It is so nice that you love your grandfather so much and that he meant so much to you in your life. I think he would understand too. I am sorry for your loss. This is a wonderful tribute to him and just reading this brought tears to my eyes.
