    My grandfather passed away last night at Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. We knew he wasn't doing well, and Heather and I were on our way to Pittsburgh last night when we got the news that he didn't have much time left. He died about 10 minutes after we arrived. :(

    The saddest part, of course, is my grandmother. They had been married for over 60 years.

    Mike: I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. What a testimony to the sanction of marriage your grandparents had - over 60 years is wonderful. I pray God blesses your Grandmother and your immediate family in this time of loss.

    As difficult as it must have been, I am thankful to hear you were able to be with him at the end. And BTW - Mercy is an awesome hospital, I'm sure he had excellent care.
