Sad News

My grandfather died very early on Thurday morning. He was 94 years old and had been having a difficult time in terms of his health for a long while. I wish I could say that this makes his death easier to bear.

Please understand if I continue to be in "blog silence mode" over the next few days.

I am sorry too. I was looking for profiles that is same as mine. Your profile interestingly appeared at the top. I was looking for a Turkish word "roman", and you also have same word. I dont know what is the meaning of roman in your language but not important. I decided to enter your blog and read your last sentences again ı am sorry for you.
hoping that you will be better. English is not my mother language sorry for my wrong sentences.
