My grandfather passed away last night. He was like a second father to me, so there are no words to express my sadness.
He was the kindest person I knew; he never said bad things about others and he was always willing to help his family, friends and neighbors. Some of the happiest moments of my life I owe to him: the bedtime stories he told me about Laurel & Hardy when I was a kid; our travels to Mallorca, Tenerife, Spain and the Belgian seaside; the backyard barbecues, the visits to restaurants... I even have fond memories accompanying him to clients when he was an insurance broker. Every moment spent with my grandfather was a blessing and I miss him so much.
