I honestly still can’t believe it happened. Sometimes it feels like it had just took place an hour ago.
I was laying in bed, not really asleep. A strange sensation came over me; like a passing of an unexplainable emotion. I tried to block it out but it became stronger.
The phone rang mercilessly downstairs. I glanced at the clock: almost midnight. Silence echoed through the house afterwards.
Soon enough, someone creaked up the stairs. I almost thought I saw lights pull away from our driveway an hour or so before.
Dad walked in, and I knew something was wrong. It wasn’t raining for the windows to be closed.
He sat down on the bed.
The words he spoke were terrible. The words of a nightmare.
” Grandpa passed away tonight. He had a heart attack.”
Immediately I started to sob.
Eternal Rest Grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them may they rest in peace. – prayer for souls.
Please pray for my grandpa’s soul.
