  1. “The sad part about dying is, it’s not going to hurt me, it’s going to hurt everyone who loves me, and I’m really sorry about that” my grandad, when he was very ill. And it did hurt….it hurt like mad. I still miss him terribly.
    RIP to all the people lost 🌹

  2. May they all RIP. Prayers and thoughts to families.
