Rough week, rough day

Posted Mar 27 2013 10:10pm
This week has been a rough one...as I mentioned before, I work in a retirement community, where each person becomes like a grandpa or grandma to me...

I lost a favorite "grandpa" over the weekend, very unexpectedly, and this week has been incredibly hard without his daily hourly visits to give me a hard time or to just chat....

Today was the funeral...I couldn't bring myself to go, and I am so angry that I was not able to say goodbye one last time...
you see I took last Friday off so he didn't get to tell me " to be safe over the weekend and have a good one", I didn't get to tell him to "stay out of trouble"...and this is really weighing on me....so much left unsaid...

So I cried....
I cried when I picked up the people from the funeral and watched the casket being placed in the hearse.......
I cried when I listened to the other's reminsicing in the van about his generous spirit...
I cried on my drive home....

I also prayed for the families comfort, and prayed for healing hearts for all of us here work, residents and staff, who knew and loved this "almost wonderful" guy...
