It has been two years since my Grandpa past away. I still would love to pick up the phone and talk to him. When I visit my Grandma, I still sometimes almost expect to see him walk down the hallway. I know he's in Heaven with God, but why is it still hard to believe he's gone? One day, I will see him again when I go "Home."
My father passed away just over 5 years ago. I feel the same. My everyday life is a reminder of him, frequently expecting that he'll simply show up. Perhaps this is God reminding us that they are not lost forever. That, in some ways, there's comfort in knowing that we will someday see them again, or that they are here with us, but not in a physical way. I've come enjoy the times I'm reminded of my Dad in the way you've described you are about your grandfather.
I lost my little brother about 4 yrs bak, his memories still fresh, the last words i spoke with him on the phone still ring in my ears, his last touch n the last hug, i can feel them all so fresh. it seems like he is just gone out n will turn up, it seems like every time i go home he will turn up to pick me at the airport, I hear his voice every time i speak to my dad, I see him every time i look in the mirror, every time i see my dad, my sister n my mom i see a little of him. It is hard to let go. But I have stopped being sad now, cos one day I shall see him, n I rejoice that he is with Jesus and there is hope. I just think he is gone to a land far off where he cannot come back from, but we need to go there when our time is come.
Maria there is hope in Jesus Christ and I pray that the Lord of all comfort will comfort u.
I lost my paternal grandfather ten years ago. It was a good way for God to put my faith in the light to see how it really was. Needless to say, my faith needed more work.
Anyway, the reason why it was so hard for me to get over with was due to my memories of him. He was here and now he's not. It's like to other people that didn't know him, my grandpa never existed but to me, he did. I carried on knowing that he had lived. I guess this is what they coined as "survived by." There are times when I still have dreams about my grandpa and I'm still his little grandson.
But this is what Jesus Christ said to his disciples, "where I go now, you can't go but you will follow later." Of course his disciples questioned, "how do we know the way?" Jesus answered, "I am the way, the truth and the life." And isn't it true for us too? Where they go, we can't go but we will follow later because we should know the way and that is through Jesus Christ.
