Every moment you can

Last night I got the saddest news:
my (step) grandmother passed away. It was all so quick. She was hospitalized on Monday. I have never in my teen, or adult life had a family member pass away. 
This morning I called my grandfather to check in on him; the first time I called he was away.
He was out picking an urn for his deceased wife. Can you imagine? 
The woman and love of your life, all the memories, joys and moments fitting into a jar?
My grandfather is so upset. So heartbroken that he wasn't able to set up the Christmas tree for her...He wanted her to have one last Christmas - no matter what time of year it was.
Life, and our beloved people in them are temporary.
Cherish every moment you can.
