Thank you for such a tender letter written from the heart. If this is a true story I can understand how one could not cry at the loss of another beloved family member so close after the death of a child. Great letter and beauifully written.

Wow, powerful and great word pictures. I could feel and see it all. If this is a true story, I am sorry for your losses.
What a beautiful tribute to both your grandfather and son. My mom and grandma died days apart too and it is difficult to have enough energy to grieve like the body requires. I pray this beautiful letter will help you heal even more. Thank you for sharing

Very well-written story, with a bittersweet taste that really appeals to me.

I felt that the 'letter' aspect of this was more of a vehicle to tell a story, rather than something really integral to the entry.

Fine writing--I enjoyed reading this very much.

A beautiful tribute to your grandfather. Makes me want to recapture some memories of my grandfathers. Good job.
