Saying Goodbye

Death is never easy to deal with. Saying goodbye to someone that you love and has been part of your life for so long is an emotional roller coaster. But death is part of life, and it comes when least expected.

DJ's grandmother passed on Saturday in her sleep, at age 82. Even though that is the best way to go, and she lived a long life it doesn't make it easier. This is the first death of an immediate family member that he has had to deal with. Needless to say he is full of emotion and quieter than normal. His parents divorced when he was 8, and he would spend a lot of time with his father's parents over the next 10 years. They filled in when his father didn't.

Tuesday they will say their goodbyes, but not to the memories or the heartache.
