It’s hard to cope with the passing of our loved ones. We all mourn and grieve the loss, and we pray and wish that a miracle will happen. But for one grandpa, he decided to do something in advance of his death to make the process easier on his family.

He created a pillow using his most loved shirt. While it might appear like an odd blessing to you, you have to see what the grandpa’s thinking behind the blessing was. It’s sufficiently touching that I cried a bit while understanding it. I as of late lost a grandparent, so I can totally understand this blessing.

It’s not the most customary or conventional remembrance, but rather it’s one of a kind and sweet, much the same as the grandpa who made it.

The message on the pillow says:

“This is a shirt I used to wear. Whenever you hold it, know that I am there. Love, Grandad xx”

 

While this family will most likely miss their dear granddad’s nearness, this cushion is a consistent indication of his excellent soul. Embracing this cushion will be what might as well be called embracing grandpa. It’s hard to adapt to the lost of our friends and family, however with extremely valuable blessings like this, it makes the grieving significantly more endurable.

Although people pass and we grow older, precious gifts and memories like this pillow will always stay with us.

Please SHARE this grandpa’s touching gift with everyone you know.
