So sorry to hear about your grandfather. Mine passed away at 92 last summer -- no matter what folks might say, it's really not any easier because they've lived a long, full life. My thoughts are with you, Shannon!

Oh Shannon,
I am sorry to hear that your sweet Grandfather passed away at the young age of 95. If he was young at 95 you and your family were truly blessed.
My grandmother is 97 and is spitting sparks.
We learn so much from them, don't we.
All the best to you and your family during these difficult time.
