Last night neither Danielle nor I slept well, tossing and turning and frequently waking each other up. Just before 6am Danielle decided that she’d sleep downstairs, but after being unable to find a sufficient warm blanket I told her that I wasn’t sleepy, would just get up, and that she could have the bed. No more than a minute later my phone rang with my mom calling to tell me that PA (my grandpa on my mom’s side) had died in his sleep.

Recently he hadn’t been doing well so this was not unexpected news but such things are always a bit of a shock. Still, I can’t help but marvel at the timing. Life is strange and it’s weird how things like this happen.

    Oh my wonderful dad ~ Your wonderful PA! We miss him so much already…. he loved you so much, Steve. So many memories – he’ll still be with you when you go driving to Petosky!!! :oD
    God has another good guy up in heaven now. Amen.

    Steve, sorry to hear about this. Our thoughts are with you and your family, and if there’s anything we can do, just call.

    Geez, now I feel like a putz for not noticing this earlier. :P

    Well, the aforementioned still holds.
