My Grandpa died on Sunday. It was in his sleep which is good. He has pretty much been ready ever since my Grandma died 4 years ago. It is probably no fun to sit around not knowing what is going on and eating mush all day. My Grandma totally managed their lives. He had a lot of good jokes. I liked his more subtle jokes like when he asked you to hand him his testicles when he really meant his spectacles. Rest in Peace.
At least we'll get to spend some time with family from out of town for the next few days. That will be nice.
