    Today i found grandad dead in his house, he was ill yesterday so i went to check on him early, he had fallen down the stairs during the night and died :(

    I'd never seen a dead body before, and never expected my grandad to be the first :(

    I loved him more than words can say.

    funny how small things seem, that yesterday seemed so important

    Richard that is so sad to read, I am very sorry for your loss. As you say this must have been an awful, awful way to find him :(

    based on his age I figured as much.;)

    My nana's big fear was she'd be left for days after she was dead.
    We called her daily and sometimes she'd just say "Not dead yet" and hang up.
    I'm sure your granddad was pleased you found him so quickly.

    slurred speech sounds like he might have had a stroke ?
