"Death comes as a friend"
It was one of the most unforgettable quote in the Harry Potter: The Deathly Hollows. It was said when the last of the Peverell brothers in the story of "The Tale of the Three Brothers" by Beedle the Bard, who asked Death for a thing that he can go to any place without people knowing that he was there.
I've now understand the lines being said in the story. We've just recently lost our grandfather. He had an heart attack that make him go to the hospital. We were inform that in his stay in the hospital, he shown signs that he was leaving us. I won't go into details to that, but I can only relate to the story what have happened.

Given the signs that he gave us, we've taken the bad news lightly that expected. Although obviously some of us cried when they've heard the news.

Writing this, is hard and heavy. We know that he's in a good place now where there's no more pain.
Mourning is normal.
Crying is normal.
Feeling empty is normal.
But we all know that it will pass. This heavy feelings will be lighter in time.
