Today For The First Time Ever, I Met With My Online Friend From The Miles – It Was Beautiful!

Since 2009 when joining The RADIO AGA Station online and joining and liking the fan page, I began to socialize with so many people around the world and since then we have all been conversing and we became a Facebook Radio AGA Family all thanks to the founder of RADIO AGA Jack Kojek who has made the world smaller and has joined and united everyone under one group which I am so happy to be part of. Today at approximately 12noon I met with one of my great friends whom I consider a sister from the many many miles. She came to my city and we finally met face to face. It was an incredible feeling. We hugged each other and couldn’t let go almost lol. It was a beautiful moment. It is so much more different and better to be in person and it was the most awesome feeling ever to finally have met her. We sort of blanked out in the beginning of what to say to each other and then as we settled down of our shock, we began to have awesome conversations and it was the most beautiful moment ever. I did not want it to end. I love her so much. She has a heart of Gold and she is such a beautiful person inside and out.

I know who is sincere, nice and very sweet just from the way someone writes online and the way someone carries themselves out. She is a beautiful person and today was one of the biggest highlights of this year. Last year I went through it by meeting someone from Boston in Montreal when I was there for a summer Armenian tent party at one of our Armenian Community Centres, and I had met another person from our RADIO AGA Family. It was an incredible experience just like today. I was thinking about that today. It felt so great today. I couldn’t believe myself after so many years typing and just seeing each others pictures, it became a reality and up close and personal. Hearing each others voices, and see each other face to face. That was so special this goes for everyone else who I have met from our lovely online family.

There are so many people I have yet to meet and I will get there eventually and hopefully especially those from many miles away. I was left speechless at one point today, but it was so beautiful. I am hoping to see her again before she heads back, which I probably will. I love her so much. Shes is a down to earth and wonderful lady. It only takes those special few people in life to call my sisters and she is one of them. I am so happy beyond words. I love her so much. God bless her and her family always.

A Tribute To My Grandfather Who Died 10 Years Ago Today – June 30, 2002 – June 30, 2012

A Decade ago, I lost someone very dear to me and someone who is so special to me, and that is my grandfather Habib Torossian. He died just about a week and a half before his birthday on July 11. I remember the morning of June 30, 2002, when we got that terrible phone call, before 9am in the morning saying that My grandfather had passed away in his hospital bed at the nursing home. It was one of those days where my world shut down, crying my eyes out, and so much going through my head and I was so distraught and shocked at the same time. We sort of knew it was coming, but then again I was shocked. My grandfather meant the world to me, he taught me so many things about life, he taught me the importance of being in the Armenian community, among so many things, and he had such a wonderful sense of humour. I can still remember his smiling face, the way he used to sit, His voice, his touch, the way he cooked, the way he played backgammon. I mean who would forget those special moments I shared with him? I will never forget my sweet grandfather.

I remember going to several trips, picnics, camping, outings, dinners, get together, parties, among very great times with my beautiful cousins, and my mom, aunts and uncle.

My grandfather had a heart of Gold, he was so down to earth and put his family first above anything else. His passion for Armenia, His passion for writing, his passion for being in the Armenian community was so contagious. I think that is where I get it from. I visit the cemetery to see him once in a while, and I kiss his tomb stone and always tell him, “Dede”(means grandfather), in Armenian, so I would say, I miss you so much. This past year or so, My grandfather appeared in my dreams 5 times. It was so comforting to see his face once again. He was wearing all white. He is my Angel from above and I love him with all my heart. He is always in my heart and that is something that will never go away. I miss him terribly much. There is just so much I want to talk to him about, there have been so many things that he has missed in the past 10 years, but he is watching from above and watching over all of us. I love him and I wish there was a way to bring him back, but unfortunately, not. He will live on in our memories, and in our homes, in our lives forever. His soul and his goodness will never be forgotten. The fond and beautiful memories is so important to remember.To My dear grandfather Habib Torossian, I love you forever. I know heaven is a beautiful paradise and your there with other family members and friends who have passed, have a wonderful time together up there. God rest your soul, God keep shining light on you and among our loved ones who are not physically here with us today. One love. One Life. Kisses and Hugs Grandpa! I love you! Until we meet again. This is not goodbye. It’s see you later.
