Samarella's Journal

I hope she is holding his hand....

  • thinking good thoughts for you and Derek's grandfather. We just went through a similar slow process with Dan's dad, who passed away on Feb. 18. The most and best you can do is be there and let him know just how much you love him.

    love, erin

  • What a sweet man! Love the wink. Holding his hand and visiting when you can means a lot. Surely he knows you love him. I know my grandmother worried that her great grandsons wouldn't remember her. I assured her they would. I will be thinking of your family.



  • I'm sorry Samantha. I'm thinking of you and sending a lot of love.


  • I am so sorry to hear this.  I know how hard it is to have  a family very sick in the hospital and having to navigate all the "normal" life stuff like getting the kid to school etc.  That's very kind how everything was taken care of for you for the arrangements for your daughter by him.  It's people like that who prove there are still some really decent caring people in this world.  We had a neighbor step up who was affilated with the funeral home and call the funeral home to take care of us.  It's nice to know it's one less thing to have on your plate to worry about when everything is happening with your child.  My mom swears to this day that her grandson wass with her every step of her surgery.  So I know your daughter will and has been there for her grandfather.  Many hugs to you times like this can be so hard and you just wish you could keep all those you love with you longer after having the type of loss we have had.  Many hugs.  Nicki

  • So sorry for the loss in your family. Thinking of you during this tough time.
