Today is designated Blue Monday, which is meant to be the most depressing day of the year. Something to do with proximity to Christmas, the distance to the next pay check, something like that.
It has actually turned out to be one of the worst days of our year. Ben’s Grandad Jack died today, very unexpectedly. He was 82.
Ben and his grandad were very close. Jack adored his grandkids and his great granddaughter, he was very family orientated and meant so much to us. We’re still realing from Colin’s death and this is just too much right now.
I took this picture about an hour before we found out. It was the only way Aeryn would let Ben make his lunch for work. He didn’t end up going to work in the end.
I can’t really talk about it yet. It’s still very raw.
We miss you, Jack. I wish you had had more time. We love you forever.
