Auh… Sorry to read this. I guess we just have to accept things like this. I’ve been through this too and it was even worse. I didn’t have the chance to hug him back then… =( PS. His past and present photos don’t have much difference. The only things that changed are his positions and skin, of course.

This is so beautifully written, Dona. Your words brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing. xoxo


What a wonderful post, doña. Beautifully & honestly written. I'm sorry for your loss.


Hi Dona, your writing about your Grandfather is so true and real and was written with such love, I can tell that. I know he loved you he told me many times how proud of both his children and his grandchildren he was. I know he showed it in a strange way but that is Skirrow men for you. I hope you are all getting by, it is such a sad time but be together and talk about the times you had with him it really does help to laugh and cry together.
lots of love Jaci xx

I have been trying to contact your mum but seem to have the wrong number and I dont think my emails are getting through. please let her know I am thinking of you all. jxx


The picture at the top of this post is absolutely wonderful. How lucky you are to have it, and to have had your grandfather. Blessings to you.


Thank you for sharing Dona. The picture you paint of him is honest and loving; I really appreciate how you were able to do that. My relationship with my (living) grandfather is convoluted and your post gave me a lot to think about.


Dona, I love this post. It's a great tribute to your grandfather. I am so sorry for your loss and you are in my thoughts. Take care!!!
