Assignment: Memoir

As I sat at the table at my Grandpa and Grandma’s house, I wondered why my Great-Grandpa was looking so sad and speaking little. “I hope he is okay”, I said to my sister in a quiet voice.I said to my Great-Grandpa “Are you okay, Grandpa?”
He said “When…”
“When what”, I said.
“When your Great Grandma Candy died”, he said.
I thought to myself that I could feel the pain in my heart while it was beating.

As I was cleaning my plate, I murmured to my sister, “Is he going to be okay?”

“He will be okay”, my sister said.

Later that night I was thinking about him, wondering if he would really be okay. Will he be fine without Grandma Candy? Will he remember her?

The next morning I woke up and I went downstairs for breakfast. When I got downstairs, I asked “Where is Great Grandpa?”
My mom said “Well…”

“Well what”, I said.

“He died”, my mom said. When I heard that sentence, my soul got sucked out of me like a vacuum.
My mom said, “How….well we had to take him to the hospital and he was just really sick.”

I started to cry. I cried so much that there were no tears left in me. Then I hugged my mom. She told me, “Everything is going to be okay.”

So from this day on, I will always remember him in my heart, my Grandpa flying into heaven to be with my Great Grandma Candy.

I have learned that I will never forget someone close to me and will always keep that person in my heart.​​​
