It's a little depressing for me, but the other day at work I thought of something that reminded me of my Grampa Boettner and that led me to think about my other grandparents.
Good memories, each and every last one of them, but then it hit me all of a sudden and I said out loud (to myself), "They're all gone..."
Obviously, it made me pretty sad and it seemed so surreal I can't explain it.
I had always had my grandparents and I loved them so much, it was just shocking that my brain had just realized they were all dead now. I was a pall bearer for each of them (among many others, my family likes to drop like flies from time to time).
It was hard to have that all hit me at once. I mean I knew they were all passed on, but I had never really thought about it as a whole like that before.
So for anyone out there that has lost a grandparent and they were a big part of your life and you miss them like I miss mine, I'll say a prayer for them because I know I would want one said for mine.
Never forget them.
