My grandfather passed away this morning, at ten local time.  Not sure how LJ is computing time right now.  Uh.

Anyway... practically everyone in the family is together, though, of course, the congregation is bitterly tainted by the reason.  That again.

Everyone seems to be faring well so far, and thanks to all of you lovely human beings for the support and kind words.  Details will be forthcoming when I'm not stealing my cousin's itty bitty laptop...

The funeral is going to be on Friday, so I actually probably won't be coming back until sometime Saturday, we haven't determined when just yet.  I'll probably snatch this little bugger of a computer up again when I find out and let you know and whatnot.

Hugs for all!

*hugs* I am so sorry to hear that. It's never fun when family is reunited for a reason like this. I've had a fair share of funerals, I only have one grandparent left. I'll be keeping you and your family in my prayers.

So sorry to hear about your loss. Death is never easy to deal with. I know from personal experience that there really isn't anything great to say in such a situation, so I won't try. :) When I lost my dad a couple of years ago, I remember being amazed at the ridiculous behavior of people who are attempting to offer condolences.
Do enjoy being with your family as much as you can, though, and know that I'm thinking nice thoughts for you.

Were you close to him?

Best wishes, and at least your family gets to be together for awhile.

I'm so sorry... Though I know you don't think it'll do anything, I'll be keeping you and your family in my prayers. *big hugs*

I'm so sorry to hear that, Tierfal. I send my condolences to you and your family and wish you all the best. (Despite what you're thinking right now, I am not a pyschopath stalker trying to work out where you live halfway across the world...I am actually Dot from The Dot-Cherri Challenges on fanfic.net :) Remember me? I review heaps (I think I do, anyway...sometimes the fics are so mind-blowing I forget))

Best wishes,

Thank you. :)

(Of course I remember you! :D Also, you ROCK for closing both sets of parentheses right! 8D)
