If you read the post I wrote about being in a hospital, you might remember that I was there accompanying my grandfather.
I wrote that entry on May 29; he passed away June 11.
We were sad. We cried – so much. We still do sometimes, secretly, in moments.
We knew it had to happen, like it does with everyone else in life.
Grandpa – an amazingly strong man – and I were two hours away from our hometown. When the doctors told us it was time to come say our goodbyes, everyone gathered.
I know this might sound strange, but a couple of days before this happened, our Chihuahua, Angie, did not leave my grandmother’s side, not even for a second, not even when my sister called her. She didn’t even leave the room where my grandpa lived for a while in.
It was as if she knew we were sad and that something was about to happen.
I took this photography of her with my grandmother. And seeing it makes me think of those times again.
I treasure it.
It shows that even these little creatures know more than we know. She really did feel my grandmother’s sadness. And ours.
