My granddad has had stage 4 cancer in his lungs and lymph nodes. This morning, hospice was to come and begin taking care of him. His wife told him that hospice was on their way. He immediately grabbed his 357 Magnum, went into the backyard behind his shed and shot himself in the head. He died instantly. He was 89. I will be away for a few days taking care of business. I just wanted to let everyone know what is going on.

Thanks everyone. Still in shock here. He said he was going to do this, we just didn't believe him. I never thought of suicide being something that an elderly person does. Funeral is Thursday. No religious affiliation since he said he didn't want to "damn child molester" speakin at his funeral. He had strong opionions, and he lived life on his own terms. Turns out, he died on his own, too.

Take care everyone, I'll be back soon.

We're all just stunned. I've been a walking zombie. My son has had some anger issues about it. My daughter is has gone through a range of emotions. We're just trying to come together as a family.
