Last night I had a dream my grandpa died. Followed by my lovely Auntie Ann being diagnosed with some horrible thing blah.

Less than an hour ago my sister called and said my grandpa had died. I knew it had to be bad when my sister was on the phone. (♥) He had a stroke in his sleep and died without really waking up which is good. I haven't seen him since I was about 15 though I talked to him a little in 2010 right before I moved here. He was a lovely and funny guy when I was younger but I have basically already grieved for losing him from my life. So this feels weird. I mean this is the man who survived a tree falling on him.

I called my grandmother. I saw her much more recently during a visit to my sister's house and again talked to her in 2010. She sounded not great, and understandably so since she was with him for over 60 years. It was actually a good talk, despite me fearing it would be really awkward. She sounded a little better by the end of it, though how long that lasts, who knows. I feel...numbysad. That's a thing. But I'm going to send my grandma a letter and some pictures. I hope it cheers her up. She said she always wanted to see New Zealand so I'll get some pictures printed of the places around here too.

If it turns out my aunt is really sick, I will be so pissed off. I am pretty sure my subconscious made up the disease though, so we might be fine.

The same thing happened to me! Yesterday I was struck with the thought that my grandpa was going to die, and then i thought I was being melodramatic, and somehow this resulted in me spending all day online doing genealogy research about him, and me getting frantic because I couldn't find ANYTHING about his parents or siblings and so I emailed my aunt and asked her to find out some things for me. This morning, he died. I've been crying off and on all day. I don't know if I can fly home or not yet, I'm trying to sort it all out. :(

*Hugs* to you.

Oh, and I found out my Aunt Marilyn has liver cancer. I didn't have any forewarning on that though.

Coincidentally I had finished a shawl I'd been working on for her for over a year this weekend (follow that timeline!) so I got that in the mail to her. I'm gonna call her again in a few weeks to see how she is. Just sad. In a sort of remover-yet not-kinda way.

Next time I call I'll just shout right away what bad thing happened!
