Grandpa and Annie

  • Grandpa died in the dead of winter.
  • Annie died in the heat of the summer.
  • Grandpa had been sick for over a year and we knew he would die soon.
  • Annie died suddenly, in an instant.
  • I said goodbye to Grandpa.
  • I never said goodbye to Annie.
  • Grandpa lived a long life.
  • Annie’s life was short.
  • I attended all of Grandpa’s viewings, spoke at his funeral, drove five hours to be with family and missed a week of school when he died.
  • I didn’t get to attend Annie’s funeral, I was across the country at the time.
