So, I was at work today, doing my own thing. I had this strange feeling around noon.

I came home from work 20 minutes, and I found out that my paternal grandfather passed away this morning. He was in pretty poor shape, but it's still very sad to see him pass away. I can't believe that he's gone.

You know, I took my luck for granted because I am 20 and still had all 4 of my grandparents around. Losing a family member sucks, and it's very upsetting. I am just in awe. I can't believe it.

Oddly enough, a very similar thing happened to me last Wednesday.

The day just felt odd, then right around 3 I found out my uncle died, granted he was poor in health and an alcoholic, but it was still unexpected.

Sorry for your loss, bud

So sorry to hear that.

My grandfather passed away late 2012. He had really bad alzheimer's the last few years of his life and couldn't do anything for himself. I know the feel.

That sucks. By the time I was 20 all my grandparents had been dead for at least 10 years. The only ones I knew at all were my grandfathers.

Thanks, guys!

I know, it sucks. My grandfather's breathing wasn't so well (but it go insanely worse over the past 10 months or so), and he wasn't able to see more than an inch from his face for the last few years. It was sad to see, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

I thought I was going to lose my grandfather a year ago, he seems to be getting better though, and I'd like one more Christmas and more importantly, birthday (I kinda want him to see me turn 20), with him before he goes.

My nan is dying of Alzheimer's and she was essentially my second mother throughout my childhood. I spent at least 3 days a week at her house for years over the summer months when she would take care of me. Nowadays she barely recognizes me and asks about where her husband is, even though he died 15 years ago.

I sympathise, OP. It's consoling in a small way to know that they're no longer suffering.

Both my paternal grandparents don't have too long left probably. It really sucks because i live a thousand miles away from them and get to see them twice a year if I'm lucky. II cherish every time i see them and i always treat it like it may be the last time. It sucks people have to stop living at some point

Yeah it does, it never really gets any easier.

One thing I found really, really heartbreaking when my uncle died was that his dog never left. His dog is so loyal, and we try to take him to our house, but he turns around and sits at the doorstep as he usually did.

My paternal grandma died around a year ago and it broke my heart, since then my maternaæ grandma has slowly started to lose her memory and sense and now has no idea who anyone is, and i'd much prefer her to have just died with the other one :/

The saddest part is that my mother actually has a pretty bad memory and i can see now that when she gets old shes going to lose her memory just like my grandma, and it just breaks my ****ing heart to know that one day ill wake up and my own mother won't have a clue who i am

Depends on the person. Sometimes it's delightful when somebody dies.

**** you

If you had to choose between someone you love dying in their sleep or getting incredibly sick and being in pain for every moment of their life, what would you choose?
Or if you got the option that theyd either die, or forget everyone theyve ever known and every moment being a cruel puzzle with no answer, would you really not choose death?

I'd definitely end their suffering.

delightful is not the word I'd use though, not by a long mile

Personally, let them die. Sure, it's sad when they finally pass, but you'll overcome it. It's even more heartbreaking when they're suffering from a physical ailment or a mental one and they have to live with that for a prolonged time.
