My grandfather passed away a couple of weeks ago. I loved my grandpa and for most of my life we were close. The last few years, due to some issues I had no control over, I had not seen him. I actually didn't actually know where he was for the last 8 months or so
He was 82. He had a pacemaker put in several years ago. His health has been deteriorating for some time. He had broke his hip and they couldn't do the surgery to fix it. So I imagine he was in quite a lot of pain. He had been in and out of the hospital and under a lot of stress.
So when my sister in law called to tell me he had passed, I was happy for him.
I tried to be sad. I really did.
But how could I be sad?
He went somewhere better.
He was with Grandma, who passed away a few years ago.
He had no more pain and no more stress.
And he would be with his family for always.
What's so bad about that?
