In Memoriam of my "Abuelito Juan"

Not a goodbye but a Farewell 
to my "Abuelito" Juan 
(my Grandfather)

a year ago almost exactly within few days 
my Great Grand Uncle left us 
 (here & here)

and now it is the turn to my Grandfather!

With deep sadness for the absence of years of living in different countries and missed so many moments...

but with enormous relief 
I say farewell to my grandfather...

 God put and end of these last years of physical pain 
and suffering...

With tears in my heart, 
grasping desperately for memories shared 
to ease the pain...

I have faith that he is in a much better place now, 
surrounded by the ones that have left us already...

Rest in Peace dear "Abuelito"!
until I will see you again!!!!

  28. Hi Bibiana,
    Oh I am so sorry to hear of your sad loss of your Grandfather.
    I lost both mine when I was in my teens, so sadly never got to spend such a plentiful of years to keep in my memories, but I do have fond memories of them though.
    It must be even harder when you have shared their lives for a good many years.
    I know when I lost my Dad 2 years ago, there is a big hole left in your heart, but it's filling slowly as the years go by, and new family members are being born.
    So hopefully time will heal your grief.
    Biggest hugs hoping to give you some comfort.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  29. So sorry to hear of this sad time of loss Bibiana. May loving memories comfort you and the knowledge that he is no longer suffering bring you peace. lots of love,Deena xo

  31. I am so sorry to be so late visiting this week Bibiana and so sorry to read your news, your memories will comfort you for sure; your card is beautiful, sending hugs Carole Z X
