Passed away today.
My grandfather, the kindest, most generous man I ever knew passed away this evening.
I don't even have the words to express how I feel.
He and my grandmother drove across the country to pick me, and my younger brother and sister up in Florida, and raised us from the day I turned 4 years old. They raised their family and still cared enough to raise us, too. We never had a lot, but we always had plenty, and they worked hard to make sure we always did.
He taught me so much... and I never had the words to thank him for that.
He was the type of person that would put the last $10 he had into his gas tank so he could deliver for Meals on Wheels... And he did so, just a week ago.
The world is truly a little darker and poorer for the loss.
I only hope that I can be even half the man he was.
