Hillary, I am so sorry for the loss of your Grandpa...losing someone you love so near and dear to your heart is never something you can prepare yourself for. I lost my Great Grandma shortly after I was married and it was really hard on me...remember and be so thankful he was able to be there on your wedding day. As the tough days get easier, you will remember all of the good and the sadness will not be so hard to bear. I am praying for you and your family. May it bring you peace that you truly will dance with him again some day.
