One of the hardest times in my life was when my grandfather passed away. I grew up at my grandparent’s house and he always took care of us. It was unexpected because all we heard was he fell down and then was in a coma. He then passed after that. As soon as I heard he fell, I knew I had to go to him. People were telling me not to go because I didn’t have a green card yet and I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get back to the US. I didn’t make any plans for my kids either, I just bought a plane ticket and went. I really respected my grandfather and I knew I had to get back. I got to HK and unfortunately wasn’t able to see him before he passed. And once I got there I crawled on my knees to see him. It was really hard and I cried a lot, it was a heartbreaking time in my life. Now that I live in the US and not in China, I’m not often reminded of my grandfather. It’s easier to cope this way.
