Reality of Losing My Grandparents

Now that summer is over, things are really starting to die down at work. The economy might also have a little something to do with it, but not much… there are still a ton of people spending a lot of money. I just finished my weekend of working in the cash office and am so happy to be off today.

I suppose this last week I was extra tired because of some things going on with my family in Hawaii. My grandparents passed away (they were the reason why I went back to Hawaii a couple of weeks ago). I think every one has been feeling a little bit of relief, since we know they’re together and no longer suffering, but just the thought that I’m now grandparents-less has made me realize that I’m getting older and life is always changing. Years ago, I couldn’t possibly imagine what life would be like without grandparents, but now I’ve come to face that reality. One day I know I’ll have to face the same reality of losing my own parents. Hopefully that won’t be any time soon.

One thing I am excited about is being able to do their temple work. My grandfather was huge into genealogy but was never a member of the church, but he often went to the Family History Center. One of the times he was there, he submitted all of my dad’s family to have their work done. He understood why it was done and figured there wasn’t any harm in it. So I’m pretty caught up on that side. I can’t wait for a year to be up and I can reunite my grandparents with their parents, and family, etc.
