grandpa, father, and buddy... - February 28th 2010, 03:36 AM

2 weeks ago my grandfather died. I don't have much of a father, he officially walked out on us 8 yrs ago but we stopped seeing each other 5 years ago. My grandfather and i have always been really close but after this happened he stepped up and kind of raised me. I was very involved with the medical problems my grandfather had and any hospitalization i was there for him. He was the only guy who was always there for me and never left. til now. For the past 11 years we called each other everyday to talk - abt our day, what we had for dinner, and what was happening tomorrow. We were ... buddies... I still expect him to be there when i call every night, but he never is.... i still expect him to be sitting in the kitchen when i walk in the house, but he never is. I just don't know what to do...

I'm really sorry to hear about your Grandad, Jess. It must be hard for you but just keep fighting. There's a strength in you that I can already see, by the way that your reaching out for help here. That's pretty brave.
I know nothing will ever bring him back, but just be thankful that you got to experience life with him. Cherish all those wonderful memories, I'm you sure you'd have. I know it's going to be hard, but just keep you head up. It will get easier.
Take care and if you ever need anything feel free to PM anytime and I'll be happy to help. <3
