Privatized Posting:

Because my roommate reads everything I post, and then insults me and throws said posts in my face via cowardice text messages, I have made my blog private. If you received an email, congratulations, you have access. Sorry you have to log in to read it, I think that's stupid, but I had to make this private for my own sanity. :]

I love you all. :D

i'm never one to be an emotional wreck, but i have officially been beaten down enough to where the only thing i want to do is cry. i have finals to worry about, i do not need this. just let me move out and be done with it. for the love of all that is holy, just let me leave.

December 9th.

I would just like to take the time to repeat a post:

A tribute to an incredible man.. He was a man among men, a man who stood above the rest. He was a loving, caring, brilliant, and funny man. He always knew what to say to make any situation better, and he knew what to say to get a little girl to eat her green beans. He was a husband, a father, a brother, and an uncle. But perhaps what is most important to me, he was a grandpa. He was my grandpa. I will always remember him as a very witty and loving person who told the most interesting stories. I will also remember those moments when I heard grandma yell "Jack!" to grandpa, who was asleep and snoring on the couch. (there were a lot of these moments.. ) I'll always remember the letter he wrote me just before I went off to college. He told me to stay away from people lathered in oil and to never forget "liquor before beer.." He ended this letter by telling me that he was proud of me and the young woman I was growing up to be. Here's the thing you didn't know, grandpa.. I am far more proud of you than you ever could be of me. You were a great husband, and a great father and grandfather. You were a rock for all of us. You demonstrated great strength all the way to the end. You faced more challenges in a short amount of time than most men face in a lifetime, and yet you would always smile and say "Hi Dani, how are you sweetie?" every time you saw me. Your body was weak at the end, but you were still unbelievably strong. For that, you are my hero. I only hope to be as great a person as you were. Even though we all miss you terribly, we know that you are staring down at us probably smiling in your subtle way. We all know that you're better this way. You're healthy and happy now. We accept that and are happy for it. But you will always be missed. You will always be on our minds and in our hearts. We love you grandpa. I love you. please hear this and know that. Love always, Dani and Your Family

**this was a tribute i posted exactly one year ago, and let me just say that he is missed and loved so much. i just want to take the time to say, again, that my grandpa was a wonderful man. a great husband, son, brother, uncle, father, and especially to me, grandfather. its still really strange to think that he isn't here anymore. but, as corny as it may sound, i know parts of him are still here. and that's what makes me smile. i see him when i look at my brother when he wears glasses. i see him when my mom says something funny. i miss him, and i love him, and i wont ever forget how important he was to me. love you grandpa. we all miss you.**
