My grandfather passed away at noon on October 22, 2012. He live to see his 90th birthday; he had three grown sons and their loving wives; he was married to the same beautiful woman for 71 years. He had four grandchildren and two step-grandchildren; we all loved our grandfather. Amazingly, he will be remembered fondly by his six of his seven great-grandchildren; they will surely tell stories to his soon to born eighth great-grandchild (my cousin had an ultrasound yesterday morning and heard her baby’s heartbeat for the frost time).
My grandfather lived a long full life; he inspired us all to hug the ones we love, be stern to those who need it, find humour in as many things as possible. He will be misses.
