Today marks the twentieth Anniversary of my grandfather’s death. My grandfather’s passing was very painful for me. I lost my best friend, guardian, protector and guide. My grandfather has missed many great moments in my life. None of these great moments has gone by without me thinking of my grandfather and wishing he were by my side. Many wonderful things have happened to me. I got married and had a son. My son carries on my grandfather.

Lives On

They say as long as someone remembers you, you remain alive. That is true for my grandfather. Not a day goes by that I do not think of him. I believe he still does all that he did for me on earth, but now he does it from Heaven. I believe he is my guardian angel.

Time Make it Easier

They say when you lose someone time makes it easier. That is true, with time some of the pain goes away. When you have someone in your life, that is a huge part of who you are. They help you develop, in every way possible. You never forget that person. You miss them at the highs and lows of your life. You get through thinking what would they do. Or, what would they tell you to do. When someone leaves this Earth, it doesn’t mean they are out of your life. I believe, the day will come, when I will meet my grandfather again. I will serve God along with my grandfather in Heaven.

Closing thoughts

Time does make the loss of someone easier. You never forget the important people in your life. Just because these people are no longer on Earth doesn’t mean they still do not watch over you. Those that have such a strong bond will reunite in Heaven to serve God, the way they were meant to.

I often wonder what it would have been like to have had a grandfather - mine died in 1943 and 1950 and I was born in 1952. Your piece suggests that such a relationship could be very fulfilling.

Touching experience...I strongly believe in afterlife, so I know you and your grandfather will meet again.

John, I am sorry you missed out on meeting your grandfathers but, I do believe in an afterlife so in another realm you will know them.

Mary, I wrote a poem for him when he died and placed in his pocket, there was one other copy of it but it disappear. Everyone reminds of how lovely it was but, no one can remember it. I have always taken this as sign I will know, him again.

Touching post Brendamarie. I believe those we were close to in life will continue blessing us as long as we prove worthy.

And our loved ones will wait for us on the other shore when we depart this shore - siva

Touching and well written. My Uncle Henry was that sort of figure in my life... taken at 46 of a heart attack. Carpe diem!

my grandmother is my guardian angel, I think of her and have written quite a bit about her as well.

I can relate, brendamarie. I think the same of my mother, who was demanding of me but made me the strong individual that she always said I was. Be at peace with it.

Though you lost him, you are still lucky because you have good memories with him. I never met mine because they died before I was born.

A fine tribute to your grandpa. Although time is a healer, it's difficult to forget or miss a person. Beleieve you me I find bereavement is difficult to bear.
