So heartfelt and so raw with emotion You touched my heart as I have just lost both my parents in February and March. The gaps seem to becoming larger not smaller as I miss them more and more each day that passes.
Thank you for a beautifully written post

My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I know of the shock and disbelief you speak of when losing someone suddenly. We were glad he did not suffer, but that does not lessen the grief.

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful post that I know was very difficult to write. xxx

It is so difficult to learn to live a new life when we loose someone near and dear to us. We come to rely on those warm smiles, wisdom shared and special traits...and it hurts to know that these amazing people will no longer be present in our day to day lives. And although I know Grandpa Robinson's memory will lovingly live on, and that the special sparkle you speak of will show up in your Hubbies and Son's eyes, I know the loss will be great. May your many memories of Grandpa Robinson bring you all comfort during these difficult times my friend. Thank you for sharing yourself with us. Lots of love Kristen, Lexi.

I'm sorry. It's always difficult losing those we love most in life. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers until you reach a more quiet place.

Oh dear sweet Kristen, my deepest sympathies, prayers and thoughts for this utterly profound loss. It is such a strong heart pain when a loved one is taken so suddenly. Keep your heart focused on the love he shared with you, and that he gave of himself enough to help you through this very difficult time. You are such a tender heart, my heart goes out to you. *hugs* and prayers, Sue

My heart goes out to you and your family in this tough time. Although time does heal, it doesn't always do it quickly or painlessly and sorrow is a deep pain. I think it's beautiful how you were able to share your story with us, a process which I believe helps the healing and the hurt. I'm sending out some love and sympathy vibes your way!

Hi, Kristen, my condolences to you and Travis, his mom, and the others.

I've been watching some of your videos on the Internet and have been wanting to make (personal) contact with you and the family.

Please give my love to your mom and dad.

You can find me on fb, but I've not been able to find a personal fb page for you. Perhaps I will through the link above.

Much love to you and all.
Valerie and Rhiannon

I lost my grandfather in a similar way...he had an illness, but something else took him so fast, so unexpectedly, that we were left breathless from the loss. A few months before he passed, I stayed with my grandparents for a week. I think he knew his time was short. I don't know how I know that, other then in the feeling of 'this is the last time we will..' do whatever it was he wanted to do. Go the to flying field, go on an afternoon drive; he was driven to spend as much time as he could with me, doing and showing me things he loved. I helped him plan my grandmother's 80th birthday, even though it was just the three of us. He was obsessed about making sure the cake was just so, her card was just right..and that she would be surprised. It has been 14 years now since he passed. I miss him. I occasionally get whiffs of some benign smell that instantly puts me in front of him, at his kitchen table, during one of our many talks. You expressed the feelings of transitioning beautifully...time does heal, but the gaps...those are so hard. My condolences to you and your family.
