A Little Hiatus

This last week has been eventful for me and my family. My ankle sprain was only a small part of it.

On Tuesday, my grandpa, who suffered from dementia for so long, passed away. I never knew that dementia was such a cruel disease until I saw how it ravaged him. While I'm very sad about Grandpa's death, I also see something in his passing to celebrate, albeit quietly. As a believer in heaven, I have faith that he's whole again.

I'm going to be a way for a little bit. Resting, swapping stories and memories, and spending lots of cozy time with my family are on the schedule. Now go out there and hug somebody you love.

Sorry to hear of your loss, Julie. Even when it's expected, these times are hard.

Julie,
I'm sorry to leave a comment like this on a post of such significance, but I have no other way of getting a hold of you. It's me, am, from college. Do you remember me?

I was watching a video I made back in the day and saw you and realized how much I just adored you and was sad I lost touch after college. In fact, I don't much talk to anyone from school any more (besides drew and jason now and then).

I hope you're doing well and that you're spending good time with your family healing.
If you want to keep in touch, email me at imacolatazombie@comcast.net

take care!
