I called overseas to greet a friend on her birthday.
A few minutes later, I was made aware of Lolo’s passing away.
Today, a friend turned 29.
My grandfather, who should’ve turned 92 on his next birthday, joined our Creator on the same day.
Funny how, in a relatively short period of time, I am reminded of life’s ironies.
No matter how much we want to hold on to people, at some point we have to let them go.
If that would mean them being free from pain and suffering
If that would mean them going to a better place and receiving total healing
Then letting go isn’t such a bad thing after all.
You’ve endured 7 years of pain, Lolo. Now the pain’s gone.
It’s time to meet Lola now.
Thanks for the brief but sweet memories Lolo.
We love you and we’ll definitely miss you.
Honestly, there’s just a lot of family issues to deal with at the moment.
But for now, I’ll grieve. I’ll cry if I need to.
Watch over us, Lolo. We need you and Lola’s guidance more than ever.
Let it go,
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don’t you know
The hardest part is over
Let it in,
Let your clarity define you
In the end
We will only just remember how it feels — Rob Thomas
