My grandma passed away last August. My grandpa passed away on this past Friday, May 16, 2008 and I can't help but think of the song "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds:
And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday
And in a white sea of eyes
I see one pair that I recognize
Next door there's an old man who lived to his nineties
And one day passed away in his sleep
And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days
Then passed away
I'm sorry I know that's a strange way to tell you
That I know we belong
And I know
I am, I am the luckiest
It wasn't a couple of days, but it was 9 months, almost to the day. I miss them both very much.
