    As if one death wasn't enough....

    A lot of you know that i lost my beloved hammie Foxy on 30th January. I've been putting on a brave face, but inside i've been tearing myself to pieces. Today, it was starting to cease, and i could think about the good times with her without my stomach tying itself in knots and my eyes pricking. Well, when i cam home from school i was told....

    that my grandad has died. He has been ill for some time now, and was diagnosed with terminal cancer of the pancreas, but his death has been very sudden. I've been knocked back just as i've been getting up. I really need some kind words right now.

    Thanks

    I am so sorry for your loss Z.
    I lost my grandad only a few months ago too.
    He too was taken away from us by cancer at 85.
    I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye because I live in the States.
    I will always remember him with love and respect. He lived in our home for 13 years in Italy and when I moved away to the States I really hoped that I would be able to see him again. I will always have a lot of fun memories of him. He taught me a lot in life.
    I know that you and your family must be going through a tough time now but try to celebrate his life instead of being sad for his death. I am sure that is what he would have wanted.
    hugs

    Very, very sorry for your dual loss.

    This just isn't starting off as a good year. My husband's granny passed away on Jan 9 and my dear ferret Miko passed Jan 20.

    Please accept a (((HUG))). I know it doesn't make it all better, but I am thinking about you.

    Thankyou everyone so much. Fate is REALLY giving me a hard time at the moment. I knew that my grandad's days were limited, but two days after losing Foxy, it's terribly harsh. Everyone's kind words have meant so much to me. It's very comforting to know that people all around the world can give me friendly support, so THANKYOU ever so much.
