Just got a text message from my aunt followed up by a call from my sister that my grandpa died. I went, and visited him yesterday. He hadn't been awake in days. His mind has been mostly gone for over a month though. The last time I talked to him when he made any sense was the family get together for my birthday in mid March. I've been slowly grieving as his mind slipped away. I'm really glad that I spent a bunch of time with him in the fall when his mind was still there. I'm also glad that I went to the 50'th Pacific University Hawaiian Club Luau about a month ago. It's amazing the community that he helped get started. I'm really going to miss him.
