One day, I woke up and my Mom said to me,
"Bella, baby, we need to drive to the hospital
and see..."

When I got there, I was sitting on my i-pad
And watching tv
Yeah tv...

And then the meeting was over
And my Grandpa was gonna die

And I started -
I started to cry
To cry
And I got to say my final good-bye 

Oh i miss him so much

He was the funnest Grandpa anyone could have
In the whole entire world
He used to buy me toys - the best toys ever
He always bought me candy - and comforted me
He was the funnest guy in world
He was always there for me

And I know deep down inside my heart
That he loved me
Me. Whoa

And I just miss him so much
I didn't want to go
To the hospital

But I'm glad I did so I could say my good-bye
But it really hurt me inside
Whoa who

And I know everyone was super sad
But that's okay, we all get emotional
Whoa oh oh

He was the favourite
He was best
He was the favourite
He was the best Grandpa any person could ever have
I  love him so dearly much

And I had the biggest cry in my life 
When he died

    Pretty heavy (and raw) for a young one but I get it.  Well done to your girl.

    Warms my heart! Somewhere there’s a proud Grandpa smiling down on you.

    Having a close relationship to grandparents is so important.  It adds greatly to a child's quality of life!

    I'm sorry you had to say goodbye.

    Thank-you, HughFreakingDillon. She sang it beautifully, but alas, did it Fred Flintstone style in the tub, so no sharing that song!
