Sadness.

Last Thursday, I was sitting in a booth at a restaurant in downtown Tacoma laughing and talking to a little six year old boy about his view on the Disney movie tangled. We were having so much fun eating churro sundaes and little chicken tacos with lime juice on top. I was in Tacoma till 10:30 that night because my grandpa was in the hospital  and some family went to go get a bite to eat. All of the fears in my mind were gone as I talked to the little boy. It was great. On Monday morning 5:30 to be exact, our family took a turn for the worst as we realized that my grandpa had passed away. It was a horrible gut feeling and I felt really bad for my dad. Today, was the funeral I didn't get that many pictures because I didn't want to capture the sadness. However, my cousins and I had a photo-shoot in the park and I'll share those pictures soon.  My cousin Maddi found a really good picture of my grandpa on one of the tables so I just thought that I would share that with you.

So sorry!!!! I'll pray for all of you. Man, seems like a lot of people are dying lately. I read another blog post where their grandpa died too, and my dad lost his older sister on December of last year.

I remember when we found out that my Grandpa had passed. My little sister, nephew, and I were outside play with glow in the dark bubbles and my mom came outside and told us. This was the first time that in a few days that we were able to have some fun because we were all worried about my grandpa. This moment of fun let us forget for a little bit, but then it all came crashing down on us again.

I am sorry for your lost. That is a great picture of him.
