3) Describe a phone call you will never forget.
My mom was at a meeting, my dad was probably at work, my brother and I were home and the phone rang. I picked it up.
My Aunt: Lisa, is your mom at home?
Me: No, she's not.
My Aunt: Well, Grandpa died...
I didn't hear anything else. I just knew my brother finally took the phone from my hand.
This was my Grandpa - My Aunt's and Mommy's Daddy - One of my four favorite guys in the entire UNIVERSE and she was telling me he was...
Just like that?
He survived lung cancer, prostate cancer, so much...and he had been HEALTHY lately.
It turned out he had a massive stroke in the house right after lunch I think...and shortly after he bought my 21st Birthday Card.
Grandpa always picked out the nicest things for the grandkids.
Ties for my brother
Whatever it was he got it right.
He taught us the difference between a weed and a plant. How to dead-head the lilies and the iris in the yard. To appreciate flowers and plants.
He had games that we only played with him. You could never beat him at Slap or Thumb War.
He was so strong.
And now...he was gone.
I still miss him terribly.
