I sat in silence, not allowing my self to accept the fact that I was just about to see something that would change my life, forever.
When we arrived it hit me, my grandfather was in this house on his deathbed. This would be the last time I saw him, and he wouldn't hear me, say goodbye
Patrick this might be the last time you see your grandfather, take advantage
What do you mean take advantage? He can't even speak
My grandma met my mother and I in the living room. I caught a quick look into the other room, I saw my grandfather laying on the hospital bed surrounded by my saddened aunts and uncles
Not very good, He's trying to speak to your sisters but its not going well
Hey Mom, how is he?
The sight of my near lifeless grandfather was something that would stick with me forever, something that would push me over the edge. I couldnt bear the sight and ran to the staircase when I would hide and cry.
Why God! Why are you doing this to us?!
I stayed on that staircase for one hour, crying out of confusion and sadness , I was not ready for my grandpa to be taken from me.
God, do not take him from me. There is so much I need to tell him before he goes .
My mom came to find me and knew I needed to leave.
