In Memory of Grandpa

Yesterday Grandpa Sandroni went to be with Jesus. The thought of his earthly presence being forever gone is a hurt in my heart I simply can’t describe. And although I know he is wearing his favorite red shirt, drinking whiskey & diet coke and chasing Grandma around in heaven, I will miss him deeply.

I’ll be stepping away from the blog for a little bit to celebrate this awesome man with my family. Thank you for your prayers!

    I'm so sorry for your loss. My husband's Gramma passed away last week and it's been a very hard time for our family. My thoughts & prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

    How lovely you've written and create this collage with your fav' photos of you and your grandpa!;) and also said farewell to someone you REALLY loved and will always loves deep in your heart.I know how it is, if the beloved grandparents pass away (I've experienced this almost 2 years ago!) and I still am sometimes sad, that I can't really ask my grandma or my grandpa's for decisions or even about their youth and stories – how much they have shared with me!;) BUT at the end we all know, that each family member NEVER really die – as in our hearts and mind they'll live forever!;)Wish you all the best and that your sadness will disappear soon (to be again happy – as that's what your grandpa would (I'm sure) at most wish to see!;)).Yours,NIKA Bittner

    I have never commented on your blog but I do check it on a weekly basis. My thoughts are with you. My grandfather passed when my son was only 2 weeks old. It was so hard especially dealing with lack of sleep and hormones. However, now – two years later – I realize that my grandfather is now my son's own special angel to watch over him.
