That is what my grandfather who passed away Tuesday (Feb. 24, 2009) at the age of 84 years old left behind him. My grandmother, his wife, passed away several years before him. Losing someone you have know your whole life is hard, but knowing that they are together again makes it not quite so bad. Have you recently lost a loved one? Did knowing they were with other family again make it a little easier?

I am very sorry for your loss... at least he had a full life with a big family! My boyfriend's favorite aunt passed away a year ago, she left 4 children under 6 years old. She was only 34, she had a rare form of blood cancer. Time heals.

I my great aunts last year. It was hard for me but even harder for my grandmother who no longer has any living siblings. It does make it easyer to know that they are together and happy. I am sorry for your loss
