I has a sad...

Just found out that my wife's grandfather passed away last night. Needless to say, we've both been in a really bum mood here. I only met him a couple of times, but he meant the world to my girl. Still, life must go on. Just felt the need to get it off my chest. Thanks for listening (i.e. reading).
