    Patrick Chan's grandfather dies

    http://www.vancouversun.com/Sports/F...058/story.html

    My sincere condolences to Patrick and his family.

    Kind of freaky though. Jeff's grandfather died shortly after he won Worlds last year.

    It's no secret that I'm not overly fond of Patrick Chan, but what a sad thing to deal with at a time that should have been wonderful for him and his family. A few years ago, when I was about his age, I lost my grandmother right before a big event in my life, and it was heartbreaking.

    I am sure Patrick's grandfather was very proud of all his accomplishments, on and off the ice.

    That is so sad. I wonder if he had won if that would have helped.
    I feel so bad for Patrick and his family.

    Hi
    Yes it is a very sad thing for Patrick. Buttercup I know Patrick is not one of your favorites nor many others at this moment in time.

    I am very pleased to see you and others rise above that and post your regret at his grandfather's passing.

    That is a sign of a true skating fan and a caring and respectful person. I as a Canadian thank you all for your messages of condolence.

    Oh no, how sad for Patrick! I can only think that he would have loved to share more time with his grandfather together with his family now that Worlds is over and it breaks my heart that he didn't have the time with his very busy schedule to do that. Just when his schedule may have allowed him a rest to enjoy his off ice life, something like this unfortunately happens. My condolences to Patrick and his family. (((((((Many hugs and positive thoughts your way))))))).

    My sincere condolences to Patrick. I know what it is to lose a family member that you love very much when you are still a teenager. I think that perhaps, his grandfather fought to stay alive until after Worlds, and that it gave him great happiness to know that Patrick won the silver medal at only eighteen years old.

    Funny, that was also the first thing came to my mind My sincere condolences too. On the other hand, the grandpa must have been so thrilled that patrick got his first World medal.
