    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...

    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...
