I am numb.
I don't even know what to say or how to say it.
We have had an unexpected death in our family. A VERY unexpected death.
The life partner of my grandmother through marriage, passed away in their home this morning. My family, both immediate and extended has been rocked to its core.
Their house is one house up from my house. I spend a LOT of my childhood in their home. I can not remember a family gathering, event or party without him. He was a part of the family before I was even born. I honored both of them at my wedding as if they were my grandparents by blood, not just marriage.
My heart aches and is heavy with sorrow. As soon as I can wrap my head around this...I will update more. My mind is swimming with words - but I can't bring myself to type them out or write them down. I am afraid that if I do, I will be acknowledging that is is real and has happened. I am not ready for that crush of emotion. Not now. Now yet.
Please, I hate to even ask, but, I would be grateful if you could keep keep my family in your thoughts. Please.
