Passed away

I don't like to say that someone has died. Or is deceased.
I like to use the term, "passed away."

They've passed away from this world. From these pains and heartaches

Yesterday, two people passed that I cared about.
The first was one of my best friend's father-in-law. RG treated my family as his own. Gave my children hell along with the rest of his grandchildren. Always happy to see us. Asked about us when we weren't there. A good soul that is finally at peace. And as much as it hurts, I know that he is truly in a better place.

The second was the preschool teacher at my kid's school. Her son was in my middle girl's class. Cindy was a good mom to Tanner. A woman who ALWAYS had something nice to say. A smile for everyone. And a dedication to her craft and her kids that surpassed what was asked for.
She passed at a young age. Too young. And it was a shock to all of us. I can't believe that she will no longer be at basketball games and teacher nights.

Yes. These two wonderful people passed away. And those of us left behind grieve for what we've lost. For the time we thought we should have still had...but now don't.

God bless them both.
