Today just after 4pm, my grandfather “Poppa Bill” passed away. It is a really sad day, though in a sense there is a sense of relief that he doesn’t have to struggle with his health anymore.
One thing to hang on to is that we will meet again one day in Heaven. Tonight as we put the kids to bed, we thought about some of the things he would now be able to do again that he hadn’t for a long time because of poor health - including running around, eating donuts and meat pies! (Poppa had diabetes)
He had a most remarkable life, and I will miss him a lot.
