Last Breath

I was with my Grandfather when he passed away and this is the emotions I was feeling as he took his "Last Breath."

“Last Breath” There I was, kneeling down beside my grandfather’s bed, praying for a miracle. The cancer had taken over his body, and he slowly began to slip away. With his eyes becoming dark and hollow, the spark of life was dimming with each second that passed. I could see his suffering; yet my heart didn’t want to let go. How selfish of me to want to keep him here, just so I wouldn’t suffer the loss? All I wanted at that moment was to feel his hug surrounding me. I took for granted that his open arms would always be there. His breath became shallow, with every weakening pulse. Heaven wasn’t too far away for my sweet, “PoPo.” I just held onto him, caressing his face and whispering in his ear, “It’s okay to let go PoPo; fly with the angels.” Words I never thought I would have the strength to say.

The strength we find in love can be amazing and even though it is tough, we can let go if we have faith. A wonderful tribute to your grandfather.

It's a difficult thing to do, watch your loved one "fly away". I did it with my father. It was the hardest thing I will ever experiece but it was also a relief to be there. And now I'm crying! If you get a chance, read my experience with my Dad under my "Articles" (I think that's where I put it)'s titled "Six Months". Take care of yourself, April

Sniff, made me CRY Tamara~! A beautiful sad story, I know how you felt~! My grandma died holding my hands, because she wanted me there when she was ascended in to heaven. I'm happy I granted her last wish before she peacefully slept, her eternal rest~!

Wonderful tribute to your grandfather; he is finally at peace, and he is with Jesus and the angels in Heaven. Glad he didn't suffer when he died. May God strengthen you and your family during this sad time! (((HUGS))) and much love, your Texas friend, Karen Lynn. :( >tears <
