    He had been on hospice for two weeks because of heart failure and kidney failure. He was able to see all of his grandchildren in the past two weeks.

    He died at home peacefully at the age of 93. I'll miss him.

    Thanks in advance for your condolences.

    So sorry for your loss....
    I lost all my grandparents years ago, and my parents (they never got to see any of their great grandkids). It's very hard...but i believe your grandfather is being blessed right now :)

    Considering the brevity of human life, it seems your grandfather had a fine life and longevity is a good hereditary genetic predisposition. :thup:

    If his branch was from your mother's side, even better. A sad event, nevertheless. You have my sympathies.

    So sorry for you loss, my friend. I lost my dad a year and a half ago at 93. He told me 2 days before he passed, "I've had a hell of a run."
