    My grandmother passed away.

    She won't be there at my wedding. She won't hold my children. I would do anything to get a moment with her, to hear her speak and listen, to talk to her again, just to see her be there. Be existent. I think the only reason I'm not given that time with her, even in my dreams, is...
