Rest in Peace, Grandfather

I'm very sad to announce the passing of my grandfather, William Hobbs. I was driving my mother and Eva to a book signing at the Brownsville Heritage Museum when we got the phone call. He put up quite the fight against cancer for many years. I remember many times when my mother called me at odd times in Hawaii and I could have sworn she was calling to tell me that my grandfather had died. But no- it wasn't until me & Eva were both there for her when he decided to leave this earth. Things like that always give my often doubtful mind confirmation that there is something bigger than us. My mother has no other family in Texas and her husband often travels for work. I couldn't imagine what it would have been like to receive that news alone. He lived an amazing life, but I wish he could have met his only great-grandchild before he passed.

  1. So sorry to hear of your loss, Erica. There definitely is something bigger than us when it comes to the passing - my father waited until I was awake and able to say goodbye and my grandpa was waiting for my mother to leave his side to pass. It's crazy! Prayers & thoughts sent your way.
