    I'm so sad. All the time.

    It's been 10 weeks. Soon enough there will be more time that she's been gone than she was here. I miss her so much. I put a picture of her in my locket. When I think of her I just squeeze it in my hand. So far it's the only thing that has made me feel better. I wish I could...

    So my grandma who raised me died about a week

    ago, and I'm not really upset, I never was really. I guess I kinda saw it coming or something. Anyway it's not hitting me as hard as it is the rest of the family. I'm 16 but right now I feel like I'm kinda everybody's rock.
