NWR: Sad news today

My mother called me this morning as I was on my way to work and told me that my grandfather passed away early today. He had stopped eating a couple of days ago, and then went in to respiratory arrest. I feel awful that I can't be with my family right now, especially my dad. He doesn't show emotion very much, but this is so hard for him. We all knew his father was going to die sooner rather than later, but grandpa is still the first of my grandparents to pass away. He was a missionary, and lived his life well. I know he's in Heaven. Please pray for me and my family during this grieving period.

    Praying for you and your family, az.  My grandfather passed away from cancer almost 8 years ago.  I know it sucks.  Hope you are able to be with your family soon.

    I will definitely keep your family in my prayers.  I lost my grandpa in 2008 and it was very difficult too.

    That's tough.  I lost my grandmother last November and it was really really hard on me.  So sorry for your loss.  I'll keep you in my prayers.

    I'm very sorry for your loss and that you cannot be with your family right now.  You all will be in my prayers.  It's hard because on one hand you know that your grandfather served God and is in an amazing place now, but I'm sure you'll miss him and you understand that you are not the only one who will be missing him.  **hugs**

    I'm terribly sorry to hear your sad news.  As we say in the Orthodox Christian faith to which I belong, memory eternal.  The memory of your grandfather will be eternal in all of your hearts, as well as with God, even though he may be gone from this world.  My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this time.

    My condolences, OP. My grandfaher passed just two months before my wedding, too. 

    Where did he serve as a missionary?

    He served in Korea for over 30 years. I have a friend who is Korean, and she is looking up information about him for me. She is going to translate anything she finds! I really didn't know him, so it is really neat to learn more about who he was.
