I know where you are comming from. I lost my granmother not to long ago and She was the best. I mostly got over lossing her by viewing her passing by being lucky to have known her and have loved her. Though I still miss her dearly I know that she is happy where ever she might be. Hang in there. where your Great-Grandfather is going, he wont suffer anymore and he can always be with you no matter where you go. If you need to talk you may PM me anytime. It also helped to talk to people about her. hang in there

i can tell you're going through a lot. but just remember that your great grandpa is always going to be together with you.. he'll always be in your heart, supporting you wherever you go.He'll be sticking with you, and you know it.

in case you need anything. remember that everyone here is ready to support you, everytime.

i leave you with a quote:

those who love us and cherish us, will stay forever with us.

Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!

Hey Christine. =]

My Grandfather also died from MRSA. I know how tough it is to come to terms with something like this. But you just have to hold on and be strong for your family, okay?

You're all going through the same thing right now, so you can support each other and understand the feelings you are experiencing.

It's natural to be angry at God at a time like this. I don't know why your God has chosen to take your Great Grandpa at this time, nobody knows. But what I do know is there is a reason for everything, and surely you don't what him suffering on, right?

Just be strong. I know it's hard when someone you're close to is seriously ill, but just hang in there. We're here for you anytime you need us. Always. I promise. You're not alone.

Take care of yourself.

You can get through this. I know it feels like you'll be broken forever but that just isn't true. It hurts hurts hurts to lose someone you love but healing is possible. By healing I don't mean burying all your feelings, bottling everything up, and hiding from what happened. Instead I mean accepting what happened, keeping his spirit alive, and cherishing his memory. I can understand why you would feel resentment towards god. It is okay to feel like that. After all it isn't fair when we lose someone and it's natural to place that anger on someone. Just know that he is still with you. In times of hardship turning to your religion can help give you the strength and energy to go on. Try to forgive him for taking your great grandpa. Everyone has a time to pass and no one lives forever. If you ever want to talk I am here for you. Take care and hang in there.

Lots of love <3 Mimi
