I just lost my Papa :-(

Recommended Posts

I am so sorry to hear this Chris! I am also an only child and lost all of my grandparents when I was young. I think about them often when i plan my wedding. It is such a shame that your grandpa won't be able to see you get married in person but I strongly feel that our loved ones who have passed watch over us as we think about them. I'm sure he will be present in your wedding and I know he will love watching you get married. God bless you and hang in there ....

Again, you guys are amazing.. You are all making me cry. In a good way. It's no nice to have all of this support. Southern Sweety, I did not know about son. I remember you telling me to drink milkshakes to help me with my weight because you did that with your son, but I had no idea you lost him afterwards. I am so sorry. You are right though, they are in heaven and in a far better place than we are in now. BTW, I passed Moon Palace when I went to Cancun last week on my way to a Paradise Maroma dinner cruise. It's kinda close to the airport. I was thinking that maybe I could meet you there to exchange the starfish next year. But you might have to warn the front desk, as all of these resorts are very strict letting people in (I got asked twice at my fiance's parents timeshare) and I needed paperwork to get into Dreams for my site visit. When my photographer came to drop off our engagement DVD, I had to let the front know before hand. I don't think it will be too much of a problem, just as long as we give them a heads up. Unless there is somewhere nearby we can meet?

I am so sorry for your loss. It makes me cry. My grandpa ultimately died from a broken hip. I somehow feel it was my fault because I stopped over at his house before going out with friends and I didn't plug in the Christmas lights. As I was pulling out of the driveway I thought I should return to plug in the lights, but didn't. Later that night he broke his hip plugging in the Christmas lights. He was in his 80s, so his health deteriorated after that.

 

He is in heaven now and so is your Papa.

I am so, so sorry for your loss, Chris...what a terrible time this must be for you and your family.

 

(I was also not able to share my wedding day with any of my grandparents either, so my heart really goes out to you.)

 

Just remember all of your relatives who have passed already WILL be there with you, guiding you down the aisle, in spirit...

So sorry to hear you lost your Papa. It is really hard to lose someone suddenly and feel lost in the world. Stay close to your family and friends for support, and know everyone is thinking of you during this difficult time.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
