Some of you connected to me on Facebook know that my grandfather died on December 27th, 2012. It’s been tough to come to terms with, for me because I was raised by a single parent, my mother and he was as much a father as a grandfather figure in my eyes. He wasn’t perfect and certainly wasn’t the best role model but he was the one who taught me how to ride a bicycle, how to swim and dance….and he loved me unconditionally. I knew it. Unfortunately, alcoholism controlled a great majority of his life but once he finally became sober, we were able to cultivate a different kind of bond. One of friendship, respect and compassion.
Miss you xo
