    Grandma just called me to tell me that Grandpa died this morning at 9:30. He was sleeping when he died. He had cancer and chemo wasn't helping, so they sent him home with hospice visiting.

    I called yesterday when he was asleep to see how he was doing. I had asked Grandma to give him a kiss for me when he wakes up. I her asked today if he got my kiss, and she said he did. So it was a goodbye kiss.

    I am so sorry. I know you are hurting right now. How special that your kiss was delivered. You can always think about that. Cancer and chemo are both horrible things to have to live with-I'm sure your grandpa is in no more pain and discomfort. I will be thinking of you, your family, and your Grandma and will say a prayer for you all.

    LOVE KRIKET

    Then Almitra spoke, saying, We should now ask of death.
    And he said:
    You would know the secret of death.
    But how shall you find it unless you seek
    it in the heart of life?

    The owl whose night-bound eyes are
    blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery
    of light.
    If you would indeed behold the spirit of
    death, open your heart wide unto the body
    of life,
    For life and death are one, even as the
    river and the sea are one.

    In the depths of your hopes and desires
    lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
    And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow
    your heart dreams of spring.

    Trusts the dreams, for in them is hidden
    the gate to eternity.
    Your fear of death is but the trembling
    of the shepherd when he stands before the
    king whose hand is to be laid upon him in
    honor.

    Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his
    trembling, that he shall wear the mark of
    the king?

    For what is it to die but to stand naked
    in the wind and to melt into the sun?
    And what is it to cease breathing, but to
    free the breath from its restless tides, that
    it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

    Only when you drink from the river of
    silence shall you indeed sing.
    And when you have reached the mountain top,
    then you shall begin to climb.
    And when the earth shall claim your
    limbs, then you shall truly dance.
    Kahlil Gibran

    So sorry sweetie! It's never easy! I am praying that the Lord will be with you and Grandma! and the Family!

    Here's a Bible Verse I always think of when some one is going through a Hard time!

    May The Lord Bless you and Keep you
    and Make his Face shine upon you
    and be gracious unto you and may
    He Lift His countinence upon you
    And Give you His Peace..................sisland
