It is heartbreaking going to funerals, especially when they are someone so close to you. She was officially my last grandparent and it is tough knowing that my dad has lost his mum. I had already just lost my other grandmother the summer before and the year before that my hubby lost his last grandparent – his grandmother. We just felt so saddened that family members were all slowly leaving us every year. I could never imagine losing a parent and those that have, my heart goes out to you. I will see my dad when I get to the funeral as he was staying at a different hotel than us as we got in so late, all I know is that I will be lost for words. How do you console someone that you are so close to that lost someone so close to them?! Sometimes I believe that a hug can say more than words in times like these. I know he is going to be an absolute mess and like many of you, I am sure you rarely – if at all, see your father’s cry…..and in a few hours I will see that day. He was already a mess knowing that this day was approaching, but never thought it would come so fast. We were told things were looking better and it all took a turn for the worst. I continued assuring him over the phone that she had lived a good long life and that she is in a better place with no suffering and no sorrows. It is just hard when you know he just doesn’t want to accept that.
