Adeus Avo

My Grandfather passed away yesterday morning. As he said, "I'm 85 years old, I had a good life. I had four children, nine grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. I've been married twice, and once to the love of my life. When my time is up, I am ready to go."

As his grandchild, I will take that to heart and remember him as a funny, loving, and caring grandfather that he was, a true blessing.

Avo, you will be very missed and please watch over us. Love you.

I am so very very sorry for your loss....

I did have to take a double look though--I have NEVER met anyone else who calls their grandfather Avo!

Mine is too! Do you have Brazilian backgrounds?

Again, I am so sorry for your loss...I am thinking of you.
