I saw him die.. - December 5th 2009, 03:31 AM

So my grandad died a few days ago.
I was with him when he passed away
I've never seen someone die before.
I keep getting upset about it as I can just picture that moment when he died.
It's scaring me.
I don't know what to do.

Life is too short to be anything other than happy all the time ..

Life is great!

Hi Laura!!

First off - I am very sorry to hear that your grandad died. My heart goes out to you and to all who cared about him and loved him.

As for having actually been there when he died - that's a tough thing to go through. Usually we're informed of someone's passing. A person will give us a chance to prepare ourselves by saying, "I have some very sad news." Then they will tell us that news. And we deal with that news from an emotional distance. [So to speak] It might hurt a LOT to hear such news - but we're not 'witnesses to the event'. [Well not usually - at least] The fact that you were there when your grandad passed away makes it so much more REAL. And as upsetting as that is for you - I think it's important for you to think of that experience as a privilege and not as anything else. The two most important events that EVER occurred in your grandad's life was 1: the moment he was born - and 2: the moment he died. And you were there for one of those moments. That may sound like an odd thing to say - but your grandad [Unlike so many people in the world] did NOT die ALONE. And you made that possible just by being there.
