Kelsea Ballerini’s Grandparents Died Within Two Days of Each Other

This is one of those things you see in movies.  Kelsea Ballerini lost both of her paternal grandparents within two days.  They were married for 62 years.

On Friday, she shared a photo of herself as a little girl kissing her grandfather on the cheek.  She wrote, “It was an emotional day yesterday losing my grandpa, but an honor to stand on stage with his last name and do what I love, knowing he had the best seat in the house.”

And then on Saturday she posted a photo of both grandparents when they were much younger.  She captioned that one, “Grandma joined granddad in heaven this morning.

“Married 62 years and only lived without each other 39 hours.  That’s the kind of love we can all only pray to find and keep.  Bittersweet few days losing them both, but smiling knowing they are together continuing their love story.”
