So, this spring I will be moving into a new house next to my college. It’s really nice- master bedroom, kitchen, huge bathroom, deck, walk-in-closet- the whole deal. Its fully furnished, and I don’t have to pay for a thing.
Why?
Because it was my deceased grandpa’s place.
And my grandma is giving it to me.
I feel really awkward, honestly. I mean, dang, the whole package, right? But then again MY GRANDPA IS GONE AND I’M MOVING INTO HIS HOUSE. I feel like it should be sacred and left untouched, or my uncle or my grandmother or somebody else should have it! I mean I’m grateful for this gift, but I was close to my grandpa and I just don’t feel right moving in. It’s weird moving into a dead person’s house but it’s even weirder when you knew them personally.
Help?

Would your grandpa want you to have it? Obviously your grandma wants you to have it, but does your uncle want you to have it?

Regardless, no one can force you to take it or move in, so if you don’t feel comfortable with it, you don’t have to accept it.

I don’t think that’s a moral issue. 🙂 People die, everyone will die. It is sad, but if he was a Christian, you can know that you will see him again in Heaven.
And don’t be resistant to moving in; just be thankful you have a nice place to live and that your grandfather had it when he lived, too. I am sorry for your loss and I hope you have a great day 🙂

Why not talk to your grandma about it? Tell her what you told us here..that you are amazed at what an amazing gift she is offering you, but you have some reservations. I’m sure she’ll put your worries to rest, because there must be a reason why she feels comfortable giving the home to you 🙂

Thanks for the advice guys.
My grandmother wants me to have it because she believes my grandfather would’ve wanted me to have it. Not to mention that, besides my uncle (who she is not fond of atm), she has nobody else to give it to.
My grandpa was very excited that I was moving to their town next spring. She said that he talked about it often, as I was pretty much their only grandchild that still kept in contact. When I was younger my parents couldn’t afford to keep me and so I lived with them for a while. I visited as much as possible and called and texted them almost every day after I went back to my parents.
I was the only grandchild who was there when he died.
My grandparents were funny. They weren’t divorced, but they couldn’t stand each other half the time so they lived in separate houses right next to each other. When he died he left it to my grandmother, but she doesn’t want to move in, so she decided to give it to me. She and their neighbors already cleaned the place out for me. My parents think it would be rude to refuse at this point in time, which might be true.
We’ll see what happens.

Oh girl, based on what you wrote, I don’t think you should feel guilty/weird for accepting at all.

Again, do what you are comfortable with, but from my own outside perspective I think your grandpa would be very happy to have you move into the house. It seems like a really cool opportunity, and if you don’t move in, someone else probably will (maybe…obvi idk what your Grandma’s plans are).

I see what you mean when you say you think it would be more sacred to leave it untouched, but wouldn’t your grandpa be happier knowing you are using the house?

So I decided I’m going to go ahead and move in. My grandmother is not going to give it to anybody else anyway. My family already got some people to redo the place and furnish it, and it’s going to really cut down on expenses now that I don’t have to rent out an apartment or dorm.
(Also my grandma kinda talked me into it because she said I could get a dog and I love dogs lol)
So thanks for the help guys. <3 Hope I'm making the right decision.
