I just got back from the hospital where I was present when my grandpa passed away at 6:10pm tonight. Gio was at the door waiting for me as I walked inside my home and sat down. He jumped up on my lap and started licking my tears away purring like he's never purred before. I don't know if he was just happy to see me or if he knew I was hurting. Anyway, I felt like he was making his first attempt to console me. It was nice and made me feel better. My Grandpa John adored him. Im sitting here right now and Gio is leaning against me and looking at me with a concerned look on is face. It just makes me wonder if we have that connection. Anyway, I just wanted to share. Sorry for posting a "downer".
