This is not the post I wanted to be making but life has a way of doing that to us.
My only solace is that my grandfather is in a better place now and no longer in pain.
The only plus to this is that I get to spend an extended period of time with my family for Christmas now. This will probably be the longest time I have spent with them since before I graduated college. I flew out to California Monday night so that I could be here and as we will have a service sometime in the coming week or so I will just be staying in CA through Christmas.
