Where I've been

Thanks to the people who contacted me wondering where I went. My pop died. I will be around when I'm good and will leave when I'm not. My pop was my world (remember just a few weeks ago his fashion no's I told you about)
My pop helped raise me. He was more a father to me than a grandfather. I am his only girl in the family too. I was his sweetheart. I had randomly stopped by his house the day before and he lives an hour and a half away. He said thank you for coming I love you sweetheart. It breaks my heart I'm the only one who got a goodbye. He wasn't sick. He had never been sick a single day in his life. He didn't have heart problems, high blood pressure, nothing. He had a massive heart attack and died sweeping the garage. That's my pop, always tidying up.

Here is the obit I wrote.

I was raised by my grandparents too, so when I heard this, I thought of you all the time. When my grandpa died it was......well, the worst thing ever.

I hope you're doing ok. *hugs*

I wondered where you were, but thought it would be intrusive to ask.
I am deeply sorry, honestly, I know how hard it is to loose a grandfather, specially the ones that take on father roles and are there always. Hugs.
