So my husband's grandfather died two nights ago. He was 97. Everyone knew it was going to happen a couple weeks before it did. Grandpa really wanted to go. He didn't like to be alive anymore, and it was clear that his moment of transition was coming close. My husband's grandparents have been integral in his life, and some of his greatest qualities came from his grandfather's loving presence. We went over as our little family of four to say goodbye a few days before the end. Nothing was left unsaid and grandpa was surrounded by love.
I did not feel sad at all. Grandpa had an incredibly blessed, full and long life. I could feel most of grandpa's family who had died in the Holocaust, and who he hadn't seen for a long time, hovering around his bedside and in his dreams. I want to tell everyone in Jesse's family who is mourning, "Don't worry guys, I'm relatively skilled in communicating with dead people, so don't hesitate to ask if you want to talk to grandpa." But, alas, they don't believe that such a thing is possible.
This is just a good reminder that our loved ones who pass on are truly still with us. Once in spirit form, they become one of our spirit guides--and often times one of the most passionate advocates on our spirit team because they're still so emotionally connected to what happens in our lives here on Earth. These "lost" loved ones are not really lost, they can be very powerful and helpful helpers on the other side, protecting you and helping you along the way. I know this is the case of my husband's grandfather, he was the head of the family and a really above-and-beyond-wonderful person. Here is the link to a book written about his life. And below I have also included two videos that were filmed of him a few years ago. The first video is him talking about his family being executed during WWII, and the second video is the story of when he met his wife (Jesse's grandma, Gusta) in Krakow 1945. Watch his whole story here on youtube. May he rest in peace.
