My whole family are really close and this is so heartbreaking for me. :'(

My grandpa passed away this morning, while I was at school. He had died of heart faliure and double nemonia (sp?) in both lungs. His body was filling up with fluids and no matter what they did, it would come back. About a week ago he lost his ability to communicate. He could hear but not speak however sometimes he would say random things. Apparently, he said to one of the nurses "let me die" two days ago but my dad and grandma don't quite believe that. He had been in the hospital for 2 months and it all started just a couple days before Christmas (when we were in America) and he stoped breathing in the middle of the night and was rushed to the hospital. Then he came back on Christmas Eve and was getting better - then we had to leave and go back to England and the day we left, he went back to the hospital for he couldn't breath again.

Also about 3 years ago he had a heart attack and recovered, ever since he has had heart problems.

He was the sweetest, funniest, grandpa ever and I love him so much.. and miss him. :( :'( My poor grandma and dad are just so upset, so is my whole family!

You see, my grandma is coming to England to live with us now probably, she gets lonely and wants to be with her family.

We are going to America for the funeral tommorow and I will be back on tuesday. :'(

I'm so sorry to hear your grandpa has passed, i know how you feel my grandad passed away 2 years ago this may and that was a shock cause i had spent the morning with him and he was absolutely fine, helped me with my garden the next day my mum come round to tell me he passed away in his sleep. the thing what made it even harder is that i was due to have my daughter, which she came the day after his funeral.

I'm so sorry Livie,
I lost my parents 3 yrs ago, 11 days apart. We had a double funeral the next week. And with time you will feel better, I promise. Even tho at the moment it feels like your world will never be the same again. Just remember all the good times you shared, and know that your Grandpa is still with you.
Please feel free to email PM or MSN me any time you need to talk
Lots of love and hugs,
Bev x x

I am so so sorry. There is nothing I can say to help, but big hugs are coming your way from me, and little soft kisses from Riffy, Dr and Scarby. As the others said please email me if you would like to. I am on the computer a lot.

Loads of love,
Lucinda, Riffy, Dr and Scarby
