    She died last year alone at a hospital in

    France. I live in Canada and I wish I was there for her... But that's another topic... She was a strong, independent woman who lived and made money without knowing how to read. She knew how to save money and she worked hard all her life to be able to take care of herself and...

    She used to say "I'm a mommy

    and grandma together!" And you know, that's so true. Nothing has been the same since last Wednesday when she passed. I miss her very much. I know she's been suffering so much. And I know that going was the best thing she could have done for herself. But that doesn't change how...

    She was the glue that kept my grandfather from falling apart. She was the best mother in the world & taught my mom how to be exactly like her. She cooked like a dream, quilted by hand while everyone else was going to machines & taught me how. I miss her, & nothing is the same...

    My grandmother passed away last week.

    She was 87 but it still came as a shock because she was so healthy and active. She was the last of my grandparents and the only one that I really knew. I can't imagine my life without her and can't get over the fact that I didn't get to say goodbye to her while she was still...

    I just lost my Grandmother on May 22,

    2015. It's been so difficult and I think I had the equivalent of a nervous breakdown of sorts. I'm learning to cope, but when I'm alone or even just out of the blue when I'm in public, I get a feeling of weakness and heartbreak. She was a tenacious and colorful woman, who I take...

    On Saturday night my mom came into my room in

    tears and stated simply "Grandma just passed away." My heart sank and I didn't know what to feel. I had been emotionally preparing for this moment for so long that at first I didn't really feel anything besides that painful emptiness in my chest. I didn't even cry and I can't...
