Goodbye, Grandpa.

Richard Mesmer
September, 1924 to November 15, 2008

He was a character. I will miss him terribly.
Grandma Betty - I hope you're ready for him! :)

I'm still reeling from losing my last living Grandparent. It was a strange day yesterday, with the burial, and then flying back to Seattle. Not having Matt here has been hard, and yet very rewarding because I've had to toughen up and deal with myself and my family all on my own. But with my family, I'm never alone. As Matt said, we are a pride of lions. Fiercely loyal until death.

I can't say much more right now - I am still processing all of this. I know it will hit me hard when I get home, or it may not hit me for awhile. Maybe on the plan when I'm among strangers. Who knows? But I can't wait to get home and get back to work, get back to living my life. Right now I feel as if I'm in limbo and it's driving me slightly crazy.

Hun, I am so sorry to hear about your family's loss. It is never easy, but I am glad to hear that you are surrounded by family. Lions, indeed! ;) Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. If there is anything that I can do for you, don't hesitate to call. Love you!
