Died from a Broken Heart

November 9th, 2006 at 10:12 am

In August of this year, My Grandfather passed away.

I just got a call that my Grandmother died yesterday. They said she wanted to as she could no longer deal with the pain anymore. They have been married over 60+ years.

Itís bittersweet, sweet that they found real love and had a lifetime of it together. Sad that one had to suffer from being apart while on Earth.

*********** This is going to seem really shallow of me. It was quite expensive to get a flight to my Grandfather's memorial. ($+600! and that is with the discount) I used up all 5 days of bereavement leave that was provided by my work.

I was informed that the airline will not give out anymore bereavement leaf discounts because of security cost. I am not sure if that is totally true. This will prolong my debt free deadline. Family is important and Thanksgiving I was planning to be with my BF. So now I need think when the shock wears off on how I can be supportive and know what I should do.

    So Sorry!!!

    My dad tried to book a bereavement flight in the last year or 2 and that was what he was told as well. They just don't do that anymore. What a bummer though.

    Awww... how very sad to hear.

    At least your grandparents lived a life of love together before they passed away.

    I am also sorry to hear about your lost. Ilost my sister in-law of 20+ years two days before Christmas the year before last and I know how hard and expensive things can be.

    I tried to book a bereavement flight a year and a half ago. Couldn't do it then either. I know that won't make you feel better, and I know that getting to Montana is pricey, no matter how you try to get there.
