A time for reflection....

Saturday, January 07, 2012

I have been starring at my laptop for what feels like ages trying to decide whether to write this post or not...I worried that maybe talking about this on the internet would be disrespectful. But my blog is a personal one, I talk about my week, what's new in my life and to not mention my current...sadness in itself feels disrespectful.
Yesterday morning my pop (my grandpa) as we call him passed away, it was sudden and a total shock to my whole family. He was such a wonderful grandpa and dad and we will all miss him so terribly...I last saw him on Christmas morning and it hasn't sunk in yet that I wont see him again...
Ill be spending the next few days with my family and preparing for the funeral.

Love you pop. xo

  1. Vicki, I hope you're okay. I lost my grandad three weeks ago and it's been such a hard time. I admire you bravery for putting it on your blog, I found it hard to put it on mine too.
    If you ever need to talk, I've just gone through the same thing.
    My thoughts are with you and your family.
