We all have to face new situations in life. Yes, everybody. Sometimes we find our selves in cheerful situations and we tend to forget about them very quickly, but when we have to face a difficult, hard, miserable, heartbreaking condition…it remains in our heart for quite a long time.
Yesterday, I received the news that my grandfather, aged 92 passed away. I couldn’t believe it. I mean... I knew this day would come one day but I still wasn’t sure if I was ready to cry and express my feelings straight away. I didn’t cry in fact…not until I saw my mother burst into tears as she showed me a picture of him just a few seconds before he passed away. It’s a harsh feeling but now I now that he’s so much happier where he is and finally he got to meet his wife again, my grandma after such a long time!
I will miss him…so much. He was my only grandparent figure for these past 15 years. And now I can assure myself that he’s in good hands…watching over me particularly whilst I’m doing my exams.
You will be missed, Emanuel. Everybody loved you. You were one happy, hard working man and you will always be in our minds and hearts forever. I’ll promise you that. I love you.
Your one and only Grand-daughter.
