One year ago today I lost one of the most influential people in my life. It’s hard to think it has actually been that long because I still feel him with me all the time. I had never lost someone close to me before, so I did, and still do not know what the grieving process is supposed to feel like. There is no specific number of days or number of tears that will guarantee you to feel better. No one really tells you what it should feel like or for how long. I think that was one of the hardest parts for me, especially living so far from my family.

I am blessed to still have my other grandparents still with me, and I truly wish I could be with them more often. The relationship you have with your grandparents is like no other – their love is absolutely unconditional and ongoing. They don’t reprimand you or get angry with you, their job is to simply love their grandchildren, and Papa always made that clear to me.

It’s a strange feeling not being able to hug him, but I still hear his voice in my memories and he lives through me, and through all of my cousins.

  2. There are no words to express how much this post means to me, Coco.

    I just know dad and I did something right by you , Aly, and Gavin.
    You’re so sensitive and loving, you just get it.
    Many times today I relive those last few days with papa. I too wish I could call and tease him , hug him, or eat some sushi.

    This is why the times we share together are memory makers that are priceless.
    Thank you for your loving post . I love you to the moon.

  3. Dear Coco that was a beautiful and loving memorial to Papa David. You are a sweet and deep feeling young woman. I am proud of you and love you, Nana
