I am sorry I didn't want to speak to you on your deathbed,
I wanted your last words to be " Take care of yourself,I believe in you and I will always love you.", I didn't want the best mumbles you put together,
I just wanted to hug you, but the Intensive Care machines were in the way between me and my Grandpa.
The worst part is the last time I saw you I was eight years old, and you were rushing off our front porch arguing with my mom about something that was out of both of your hands,
I am sorry I didn't know it will be the last time I saw you before the end of our short lived loving relationship.
But I promise Nov.30 i will be in Santa Ana ,California with you as we celebrate one year without my Grandpa.
I am sorry Grandpa.

I wasn't talking to my grandpa before one late evening my mother got a call. It was from an estranged aunt from Kentucky saying my grandpa is in ICU at Hoag's hospital in Newport Beach. That one phone call ruined the rest of life with my favorite person in my eyes.
