I will start this post by saying Happy St. Patrick’s Day although for me and my family St. Patrick’s Day has become a sad one since my grandfather died on this day 3 years ago 🙁
Anthony Garone aka Pop
I think the worst part of life is the death of a loved one, unfortunately it is something we all must face at some point but it is never easy. I truly feel people come in and out of our lives for a reason, good or bad, we learn from everyone we come in contact with everyday. My grandfather raised me from this time I was a toddler and he took care of me until the day he died, I will always be grateful for having him in my life.
My stepfather Richie lost his father suddenly at a very young age and when Pop died he posted this song on Facebook for me:
Richie told me that this song comforted him during his grief and as much as it has made me cry I too have also found comfort in listening to this song. Thanks for sharing this with me Richie!
Take a moment today to tell your loved ones exactly what they mean to you because you never know if you will ever get that chance again. We all take for granted that people will be around forever but unfortunately as we all know that just isn’t the case.
I love you Pop and I miss you!! I hope you are celebrating a great St. Patrick’s day with Nana!
