    My cousin's grandfather past away on friday. Although he wasn't related to me(actually he wasn't technically related to my cousin either but that's another story though) he was still a big part of my life. Him and his wife lived right underneath my cousin and when ever i went over to visit they were there. I'm feel fortunate that i was able to visit him one more time this past April. I don't think i'll be able to to make the funeral though. :( I feel bad that towards the end of his life my cousins family i felt like treated him as if he were already dead in away. They moved his wife into a home across the country. I realize she has severe altheimers but i feel like they just should have waited a few more weeks before they did it so he could have been there with his wife when during his last breathe. Anyway i`m not going to go on about how i think things should have been handled because it`s too late. He did have what i beleive was a happy life. He had 4 kids, and over a dozen grandchildren. He was also veteran and loved the military and will likely be buried in the military cemetery.

    Good bye Hank,
    Take care of my pets up there until i join you.
