Recently my amazing granddad who we all called Poppy suddenly passed away. It is still a shock to me but in time I will have to accept it. It is so hard to believe he is gone. He was fine before hand. My poppy was the closest person iv ever known to be a saint. He was genuinely the nicest person iv ever met and ever expect to meet. Always kind to everyone even strangers and always wanting to help anyone.
He will be so sorely missed and i don’t want to let go. I still have a drawing he did for my son on a miniature chalk board that I have kept im so scared it will rub away and i will loose that too. perhaps im being too centimental but its the last thing i have of my poppy.

  • It is so hard to lose someone so close. Sorry for your loss it does get easier it just takes time.


  • I’m so sorry for your loss, he sounds like he was a very special person. I never had a pop as both my grandfathers died young but if I did have one I would have wanted one just like the special person you describe. Keep him in your heart and remember all the lessons he thought you so you can pass them on to your children.


  • It’s always hard loosing love ones,my pop passed away just over 4 years ago he was 93, he was such a great role model , loved by many was the one of the saddest days saying goodbye,I still get emotional every now and then especially when his birthday comes around or just thinking of him but I also smile remembering all the stories he told me about when he was a young fella, it does get a little easier as time passes, big hugs to you, maybe take a photo of the picture he drew for your son

    • Thank you. I’m sorry about your poppy too. Xx
