My Grandpa always loved those chocolate covered cherries that you can only get around the holidays. Every year, and I mean every year we had to get him a box of those Queen Anne's Chocolate Covered Cherries. I think everyone in the family did - he had a stash and loved every one of them.

Personally, I can't stand those things, but came close with a drink - a Chocolate Covered Cherry shot (Dr. McGillicuddy's Cherry Schnapps and Godiva Dark Chocolate liquor, 1/2 and 1/2). So I did a shot, toasting to Grandpa tonight.

Word to the wise - you can't do shots when you're crying!

Oh Heidi...I'm so sorry to hear about your grandfather. I'm thinking of you and your family, especially your grandmother...are there people there with her? She may need someone monitoring her to make sure she eats, etc. and

I like the sound of the chocolate cherry shot. Maybe it was a little soon.

Your grandparents have had good long lives and although you are going to miss your grandfather and you'll want to comfort your grandmother, do try to see the positive side and celebrate a life well lived.

I have had to deal with more than my fair share of death. Some are easier to deal with than others. My beloved grandmother was actually one of the easiest. She was 96 when she died and her quality of life had deteriorated badly but she had been a loving, strong but modest woman who was adored and respected by her whole family. Her time had simply come and we had to accept that and be a little grateful for her because her life was never going to get better.

So be strong, be there for your grandmother and try to call to mind all the happy memories.
