Most of my life I had my family with me. I never had to deal with death so close to home when I was a child. I was very lucky.
I had my grandparents well into my 20's. But now... Over the past year I've lost both my grandmothers and today, my grandfather just passed away suddenly.
I will always remember the good times I had with my grandparents but I can't shake that feeling that they're not here anymore... or soon all of them will be gone one day. My father was crying when I was on the phone with him and it made me think... one day that is going to be me.
We all know we're going to pass on someday, we all know that. Yet it doesn't prepare you for when that time comes. The thought constantly comes into my head that they're no longer with us. I love my family and I never want to let them go.
