    Aww, Beau. What a tragedy. I'm so sorry.

    Knowing you, I suspect you're better equipped to counsel your students than any lesson or class could teach.

    This is late, but I've been MIA. Sorry for your loss, I'm going through something very similiar. It isn't easy, even when you expect it.

    This is late, but I'm sorry for your loss, beau. Sounds like you have a lot of wonderful memories.

    And I see that I've now discovered the root of your freakish word talents. I had no idea it was familial.

    I'm so sorry Beau...big hug to you and your family. I hope the service today helped you remember even more wonderful times with him. A part of him will always be with you given the influence he had in your life.

    Sorry for your loss - I can only hope that the funeral will be similar to that of my 97 year old Great Aunt who passed this summer - a very noisy group of people celebrating and sharing remembrances of the long life of a vibrant person who touched many others in her lifetime. You are living proof that your grandfather will not be forgotten.

    I think death of a loved one is so sad, even when it is a blessing. Hold on to your happy memories.

    Sorry Beau. The most important in such a day is stay close to your family. Love is the only comfort, and your grand dad was loved.

    Hey, Beau:

    I am so sorry for your and your family's loss. Certainly know that all of you, including your grandfather, are in my thoughts and prayers. Please know that all that you are feeling- including being afraid to see him- is very much normal. And- thank you so much, in this time of grief, for sharing stories about your grandfather. I am so glad that you and your grandfather had these great times to share.

    Great that you can remember the good times. Hopefully, that will the common thread of the funeral time with your family. I'm sure it's how we all want to be remembered. It's okay to cry a little too!

    You´ll always have those memories to treasure.

    Not much one can say but "strength Beau". And true strength includes acknowledging your feelings and even crying if you so feel like it.

    Playing is nerve racking. But watching can be just as bad, if not worse!!!
