In life I have lost several valuable things and have been unhappy at times However nothing can be compared with the sorrow that I came through when I knew that my grandfather the person I love most in the world passed away As I can still remember very clearly it was a September morning in my first year in university that received a telegram I opened it and read the sad news my grandfather had died the previous day I was totally shocked and even could not believe my eyes anymore My whole body shivered How can that be the truth Someone must have teased me I thought I tried to calm down took the telegram read it over and over again with a desperate hope that I had misread it or that the post office had delivered it to the wrong address Nevertheless the more I read the more my doubts were dispelled It must be true I did not know from what time that tears dimmed my eyes My feet seemed to be rooted to the ground and all my strengths disappeared A feeling of powerlessness spread out inside my body Suddenly all my memories poured out in my mind as if they were happening before my very eyes I recalled learning the first English lesson with him and the good times we had gone swimming together I considered him a great friend whom I could tell all my secrets and share all my innermost emotion with My grandfather also showed great affection for me He would buy me anything that I asked for Now could it be that I would never see him again At that moment I realized acutely that he was a precious treasure It was enormously painful to think that I lost one person who understood comforted brought so much joy to me and more importantly had the greatest influence on my mentality His death changed my entire life
