This had a wistful mood, sweetly sad.

You got this right about half the time, but sometimes not: it should be "could have'" and "would have", not of. It's a common mistake, because when we speak, we say "could've" and "would've", and it sounds like "of".
The fact that you missed the good influence of a grandfather is a testimony to the importance of these kinds of relationships. Maybe when you get to Heaven, that wonderful relationship can begin!
This is kind of sad. I'm sorry that you never had a chance to get to know your grandpa. God had a reason for taking him though. Hopefully you will have an opportunity to become a grandpa someday (if you aren't already one).

Thank you for sharing.
