    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...

    My G-ma; My Friend.

    When I was eighteen, I was a senior in high school. Five days before graduation, it was warm for May, and my friend and I were having a lot of fun hanging out. My grandmother- who I called "G-Ma" because she was too cool to be a grandma- called me. We often talked on the phone...

    I lost my grandma 5 days ago.

    I was there and had just woken from a nap at the hospital and the nurse was checking her heart beat. It wasn't there. She was only 62. Today was the services and I have cried more in the last week than ever before. I miss her so much.

    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 was never close to my gma.

    (moms mom) we lived 4 hours away and barely saw her. Plus my aunt and her four children lived with my gram so it never seemed like the other grandchildren were as important because she wasn't raising us. I have very few memories of my gram. And when she was in the hospital in a...

    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...
