  • Mood:

Welp, it looks like my grandfather, the Bishop, is about to pass.

Don't know exactly how I feel right now. Last time I saw him was when my dad died and he was getting pretty up there.

He's in a hospice right now (that carries his name, BTW), withering away from mouth cancer and probably won't last the week. He's barely coherent and, if he is conscious, probably won't recognize me. I'm debating going up there: I'd rather not remember the last image of him as a flesh-clothed skeleton with a rotting mouth and there's likely nothing I could do that would make him feel better. I don't even think I'll be able to see in time if I could.
