Okay, Kiddo

Yesterday Saba, my grandfather, passed away. He went quietly after a long illness. His children and wife were with him.

I am sad.

All day, that's really all I've been able to say. I am sad. Three small words, a simple sentiment, not truly describing, but hinting at the shape of it. I am sad. Saba is gone now and I am sad.

I am sad.

friendBrian, though, replied in perhaps the best way imaginable:
"I'm sorry. Tell me some of the awesome stuff he did."
And I started to list them. And I'm still sad. But Saba was a truly wonderful person. Here is some of the awesome stuff he did.
