Again, already?

My grandma, who died in 2003, had the same boyfriend for the 20 or so years before she died. She lived with him. We called him grandpa.

My dad's father died before I was born.

I always called him grandpa. While, technically, he was not (which I was always aware of) he was the only grandpa - on that side of the family - that I had ever known.

He was my grandpa.

And he died today.

It was a routine surgery. The first of a few, to fight the liver cancer that had recently been found. The surgery went poorly. He died later, in the Intensive Care Unit.

His children aren't having a funeral. And so it is just over - like that. Here. Gone.

I thought 2010 was supposed to be better.
