I've just edited my last post. At least everything will be in KC, so that really is a relief.

And to think that I wanted him to walk me down the aisle, too. Life is too fragile, Lord. Too fragile for any of us to realise. One day, we think we're totally invincible, and then the next day, someone close to us dies, and we're reduced to a pile of nothingness.

Right now, I'm trying to think of what I want to place in his coffin. I know he can't take it with him, but I want him to have something (and it'd be an odd anthropological thing, too). I am planning on taking the wedding proofs from his wedding to Grandma (which was almost sixty years ago), but I want to keep those close by, so I can display them at a table at my wedding, whenever the hell that is. (That's my big thing, family history. I really want to have wedding pictures from as many close family members as I can so that they have a part in my day)

Anyway...I don't want Grandpa to go like this, but then again, I don't want him to go...which is pretty selfish, but it's true. It's not like it was out of the blue like Uncle Tom. This one, I have warning for, and it's not fun.

My grandfather is in a bone-cancer related coma right now.

The doctors have given him twenty-four hours to live.

I'm shaking, literally, and am even wondering if I need to pack to hop on the plane to Colorado to work on the final arrangements with my family.

Please pray for my family. This is too much at once. Uncle Tom, Great-Uncle Bill, and now Grandpa.

If I disappear for a few days, I'm probably in Colorado.

EDIT: I just got a call from home. Services will be in KC, so it's a lot closer to home (it -is- home), so it will be easier to drop everything. I might ask Anti to let me take his computer with me so we can keep in touch.
