    5 Years Later And Pain Still Hurts

    I lost my grandma a lil over 5 years ago and for what reason? I have no clue. Nobody does. I grew up living with my parents, my teenage sister at the time, my grandma (moms mom) and me just a few years old. My grandma was always around. She may not have been one of those grandmas...

    I loved her lots. She was funny

    but confused and lived until the age of ninety, passing on a march afternoon. This was hard hitting news. At the eulogy only then I learned it was cancer. A born cowgirl, she loved horses but her family threw her away from the farm and into a retirement home. Goodbye, Ethel. I...

    Well she was very unlucky sort of like me.

    Her husband treated her badly and abused her. He even slept with his brothers wife while she was sleeping. They were in the same room. The bastard told his brothers wife while she was sleeping that he wanted to kill her but she told him not to. Eventually she left him and took...

    She took me in when I was a baby.

    Grandpa had passed away and her love for me lighted her dark days. She never remarried. She dedicated herself to raising me. I learned the moral values and respect from back in her times when men weren't full of excuses but were responsable and accountable for their actions...

    I miss my maternal grandma every day.

    I've been thinking of her lately and how incredibly unfair it is that my kid never met her. I still dream about her.

    My Grandma died 4 years ago

    I do. I miss her a whole lot.

    I often find myself doing something and think of her. I even picked up the phone to call her only to realize that she's no longer here anymore. Having that realization over and over hurts more each time.

    I Miss Her Wise Counsel

    My grandmother was among the last of her kind; a true lady. She was gentle in her words and actions. She rarely had a harsh word to say about anyone. Even when she chastised me, it usually ended or began with 'child' though I was 32 when she died. I remember when she told me that...

    very quickly. But still the first ray of the sun comes into our house through my gradma's window in the morning. Still I can hear her calling my name and asking me to come into her arms. Now nobody asks me why I am quiet; why I look so angry; why I am sad. Nobody helps me to...

    My Grandma could sew like nobody's business.  She didn't do it for a living, but I suppose she could have.  She sewed most of her own clothes.  I'm not talking moo-moos here.  She made fabulous tailored suits for work, even her own blouses. Every Christmas...

    I was closer to my Grandmother than I have ever been to my mother.   We lived with her and then she lived with us. She was very polite and very kind. And always very much the lady! Not "put on airs and graces", but just natural and elegant; a lady with a soft gentleness and...

    I never had the opportunity to see her properly,

    I was too young to remember anything about her. All I knew is that when I was about two years old, she was still alive and I had met her a lot of times. She died of lung cancer, and my older cousins used to tell me how it hurt them when she suddenly died. I had a picture where I...
