Home is where the heart is.

Dearest Family,

I think I am as ungrateful to be here as is possible or remotely acceptable. It's incredible that from across the world... I can still feel close enough to you all to feel your pain and sorrows. I wish SO badly that for the next week I could be there with you all... if not for you- but for my own needs.

I was thinking last night, as someone told me they were sorry for my "loss"- that "loss" seems like an innappropriate description of our current experience. Rather, I am choosing to deem this as a "transition". Loss is not applicable to Grandpa. He is ours for eternity if we do our part.

I am SO grateful to know that families can be together forever- and to have the opportunity to be with you all for all time and for all eternity. I intend to do everything in my power and through that of Christ to see Grandpa again. I have found so much peace and comfort in the knowledge of and the healing power of Christ's Atonement. Thank you for being so wonderful and mindful of even me.

I'm assuming and hoping that my heart is over there with you guys- because it feels like it's been ripped out of my chest and isn't here anymore.
