This past saturday i lost my grandfather who was also like my best friend , its been 2 days and i guess im going to have to learn what life is like without him, we were thick as thieves, evry saturday my wife and i would go see my grandparents and have dinner w/ them , my mom , uncle ect , then most saturdays my uncle , my buddy larry and my grandfather and i would watch boxing when it was on. my grandfather is the one who got me hooked on boxing to begin with . i guess the silver lining in this is on wenesday my uncle and i took him to the dr to have a petscan done because he has been on oxygent for years now but his shortness of breath and breathing issues had gotten worse, he was getting frequent lung infections , so on friday my mom got the results and we found out he had stage 3 lung cancer, lately i have been going to my grandparents early on saturdays to hang out w/ my grandfather so my mom could take my grandmother out to get groceries ect , i usually was there by 11:00 am on saturdays , when my mom called saturday at 10:00 i didn't think much of it but after answering she said my grandmother couldn't wake him up , evidently he was ok when my uncle left for work at 5:20 sat morning , he told my uncle bye and he would see him after work , and went back to bed and between then and 9:30 he passed away in his sleep , he was 82 and to be honest i think this was the best way for him to go being that dying of lung cancer is painful and drawn out , but im honestly hearbroken , i miss him , he was the best grandfather i could of ever had and my best friend , i know that God took him home but i just wish i could of had one more saturday w/ him . sorry to ramble on .
