    My grandpa passed last night at nearly 90 years old. He taught my mom to camp, who in turn taught me. I only remember camping with him one time, but I've heard lots of stories. He was still tent camping in '85-'86 at 56 or 57 years old. He used to say the rosary at bedtime in the tent to put the kids to sleep. I'm going to start this on our next trip in his memory.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. What a nice tradition of saying the rosary. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    Sorry to hear of his passing. At least you can be thankful for the lessons and traditions he shared and be proud to carry on.

    Sorry for your loss, it is never easy to say goodbye to a loved one. But as stated by neighbormike appreciate and remember the things he taught you. My Dad has been gone for a long time now but when camping, fishing, or hunting I still think of him and miss him
    but remember all the things he taught ( many passed down from my Grandfather) to me and hopefully I have passed these thing to my son.

    Thanks everyone. I just needed a way to work through my feelings. I have not been allowed at his or my grandma's side yet and I'm struggling with helplessness. And the thought that "here I am doing my normal daily routine kids, homework, scouts, and my grandpa is dead."

    That got much longer than I expected. Anyway, thank you for the support.

    Do not be afraid to grieve and show your emotions, I remember when my Dad Passed, I did not grieve but a few weeks later I was fishing, I caught a Bass and sat there and cried like a baby, I would have felt better much sooner if I had taken the time to grieve.
