Crappy day..

Went to be around 2:30 this am, needing to wake up at 9 this am, around 4:30amp my doorbell is ringing like crazy and knocks on the door, I'm like WTF??? Wife looks outside, says its my parents.. Me not thinking clear, I'm wondering WTF are they here for.. They are here to inform me that my Grandfather, who is 63 years old, had commited suicide. He had lots of health issues, and has been on TREMENDOUS amounts of pain meds (Hydrocodone pills, and Morphine patches) for a while, and has fought through is strongly. Guess he decided that enough was enough, kinda had it planned out, as we found out he had done some dealings at the bank this past week, paying off some items, moving money around etc.. Around 1 am yesterday he left his house while his wife was asleep(not my grandmother, new wife of 10 years), drove to the local fire station, went and sat under a tree and shot himself in the chest.. He had it all thought out, not to ruin the home for anyone, or the vehicle, and do it where he was easily found and able to be cleaned up. We haven't found a note, just some misc paperwork, however I think there may be some info at the back that we may find. Definatly not something I wanted to hear, or expected to hear. The worst part is, he lived 1 mile away from me, yet I hadn't seen him since Dec.31. I always had an excuse, and sometimes they were valid, now that I sit back and think about it I feel like ****, that close yet I didn't ,make enough time to go and see him.. Gonna have to live with that, forever now.. Thats the worst part of it all..


Let this be a lesson to EVERY PERSON ON THIS BOARD, make sure to set the time aside for family, even if it isn't the most convienent, because 1 day they will be gone, and it could be very unexpected when it happens.

R.I.P. Grandpa, gonna miss you!! Say hello to Grandma for me..

Thanks guys. it was ok all day, had a bowling tourney this am and had to be there, didn't want to be, but couldn't let my team down, started off rough, but my friedns around me got my mind elsewhere, and with a lil help from above ( I know he was watching) we actually managed to takes 2nd place while my wifes team got 1st.. Spent the rest of the day with my parents and lil bro, wife had to go to SA for the evening for a prior commitment, came home, all alone, and thats when it really hit me. Its alright though, just look at the positive memories and know he's in better hands now. Definatly helps to have good friends to get you through like I have.

Local news station and mewspaper have a small story on it, too bad they can't even give 1/2 way accurate info though.

Sad to hear that David. My grandparents only live about 45 minutes away up here in Terrell and though I only see them about once every couple of months I always try to make it known what they mean to me

My dad passed away suddenly when I was 12,so, I've kind of been prepared for that most of my life

Its a shame what we can neglect while time zips on by

Sorry to hear that. My grandpa shot himself in the head a few months ago, but he didn't care too much for the family. He did it at home where my sister or mom would find him. Luckily one of the neighbors swung by to check on him and found him. I hate to hear of anyone doing that and leaving folks behind to wonder "what could I have done?" but at least he was as considerate as possible though still leaving the questions. Prayers for your family going up...

David, I send prayers for you and your family. I know how you feel sort of. My Dad did the same thing. It is a long story but it does not lessen the pain. Stay strong and do not hold your feelings inside.
