I have some bad news for those of you who care. My grandfather passed away on Friday morning at the age of 71 years old. He was a loyal Dolphin fan and the reason that I am today. He loved football as much of any of us. He always listen to the high school games on the radio every Friday night. We had not missed a Fin game in three years. He always told stories about this game or that game. I think his favorite story was when the Dolphins beat the Bears in 1985. He also told stories about the years in the 70's during the Super Bowl years. Although I was young we were together watching the game the day Marino went down with the achllies injury. We watched almost every game together.
I have never lost anyone close to me so I don't know what to do. It sucks so bad. I looked up to him more than anyone. He is the biggest reason I am who I am today. Everyone keeps saying "if you need anything" or "if there is anything I can do". What do I need? What can they do? Nothing! Stop asking! I know they are trying to be nice but sometimes I wish they would just leave me alone.
What makes it even worse is we have been counting down the days for the season to start but he is not here to see it this year. And even worse than that is the first time we were going to watch them together this year was the Falcon preseason game on Friday but he died that morning. My mom called me and told me he was not breathing well and I needed to come to the hospital because the ambulance was taking him there. She did'nt tell me it was that bad. He died at his house. I thought he and I would be watching the game in he hospital because he had been a little sick. My grandmother was taking him to see the dr. that morning but he did'nt make it!! We had been trying to get him to go all week but he is stubborn and never liked going to the dr. anyway.
Well sorry to bother you guys.
Popaw I love you!
