Today we say goodbye to Grandpa Fred. I wasn't planning on taking Scarlett and Violet, but I'm told that grandpa would have wanted them there. So we're taking both of them. Grandpa Fred lost his battle with ALS ("Lou Gerhig's Disease") after a 6 year fight.
I really feel like Scarlett and her grandpa were a kindred spirit since they both have medical ailments requiring a lot of the same equipment (feeding tubes, oxygen, ventilator, etc..). I am sad for my husband and his siblings for their loss, and I am sad for my girls. That they will never know him except for in pictures. Today is a sad day.
