Here's a tribute to my dear ol' grandpa. With lots of love.

It's been a rough couple of days since leaving Canada. I'm now back at home. Grandpa waited for me til the very end, and left the very moment I saw him-one last time.
I'm eternally grateful for the friends who advised me to come home- if I hadn't, I would have made his efforts for holding on go to waste and I would have regretted for the rest of my life. I am grateful for my teachers who told me to take as long as I want. I haven't touched a single medical book since arriving home and am not at all prepared for the coming exam next week. But I am hesitant on postponing it. That said, it's the least of my worries right now.
Seeing my mum break down and cry her heart out as my grandpa's cortege left our house, my heart broke. Those days back in Canada, she was always the strong one consoling me on the phone, comforting me. Here at home, I have to be strong for her and it is now my turn to be her supporting pillar. I have decided to extend my stay here longer.
Rest in peace grandpa. Thank you for waiting. I love you so so much gong.
P.S. This video my baby sister just showed it to me. She made it for her school project and it touched me to tears.
