Dear John & Linda,
We are still in shock over your loss of your Grandfather. We are trying to comprehend your grief but know that is not possible. We can only offer our very deepest and sincere sympathy at this very, very sad time.
We considered your Grandfather like family and thought so highly of him. I can't tell you how many times we mentioned him in deciding what we should do in different situations. He was truly a role model for all of us.
We always talked about how thoughtful and considerate he was. He was truly a selfless person and was always willing to help others in need. And what was most telling is how modest and unassuming he was when any praise was directed to him.
We know that you will have a difficult road to recovery and we want you to know we will be there for you in any way we can. For now, just know that we are sharing your grief at this sad time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and always.
In Friendship & Sorrow,

I didn't know your grandfather very well but from all the wonderful things you told me over the years, I know he was a very special person. I know you were very proud of him and that he was a good and loving person.
Please extend my sincere sympathy to your wonderful family. I know that you will find comfort in each other's love as you face this tragic loss.
God Bless You.
With Deepest Sympathy,
Betty & Children,
I am sitting here still trying to comprehend your loss of your grandfather. It is such a profound loss that I'm sure that we can't truly understand your grief.
It is wonderful that he had a long and productive life. He was such a hard worker and was always so respectful and considerate. I will always remember the time he helped me when my roof was damaged in a storm. I'm sure he had plenty to do for himself, but he worked diligently to get the problem solved.
Your grandfather and all of you will always have a special place in my heart.
God Bless You all at this very sad time.
In Love & Friendship,

By William Butler Yeats
Old fathers, great-grandfathers, Rise as kindred should. If ever lover's loneliness Came where you stood, Pray that Heaven protect us That protect your blood.
The mountain throws a shadow, Thin is the moon's horn; What did we remember Under the ragged thorn? Dread has followed longing, And our hearts are torn.
The Death of Grandfather
By Aleksandr Blok
We waited commonly for sleep or even death. The instances were wearisome as ages. But suddenly the wind's refreshing breath Touched through the window the Holy Bible pages
An old man goes there- who's now all white-haired With rapid steps and merry eyes, alone He smiles to us, and often calls with hand, And leaves us with a gait, that is well-known.
And suddenly we all, who watched the old man's track, Well recognized just him who now lay before us, And turning in a sudden rapture back, Beheld a corpse with eyes forever closed ...
And it was good for us the soul's way to trace, And, in the leaving are, to find the glee its forming. The time had come. Recall and love in grace, And celebrate another house-warming! top
