    Today, my grandma left to join our Creator.

    It hurts so bad and I literally feel the pain on my chest. I am grateful that I have friends and found families who are there to comfort during this very tough time. Before she dies we had time to talk. I told her to let, let go because she is suffering, because it feels worst...

    My grandmother passed away nearly a month ago.

    She was like my mother - she raised me, cared for me when nobody else would. she was the one I went to when I needed help. My oldest daughter adored her. I would visit her every day. I visited her hours before she died. She seemed fine and then at 1:15 in the morning my father...

    Grammy, You said I would make it

    My grandmother was put into hospice

    for no real good reason other than insurance would cover it. She was refusing her medicine and refusing to eat. She got real weak and couldn't even walk. So she was placed in hospice where she was allowed to refuse her medicine and food and she turned into a living skeleton. It...

    September 3, 2009. It was my grandmother's (on

    mom's side) 77th birthday. She lived in the next town over and I happened to be in town with a friend running some errands. Knowing it was her birthday, I wanted to stop in and say hi. But my friend was on a time crunch so I didn't get the chance to stop by."That's okay," I told...

    My Grandma

    I miss her so much. She passed away last year, 10 days before her birthday. She would have had 89 years old =( Alice. She had such a beautiful name, just like her. I guess this name will be on the top list later if I expect a girl. It's my mother's mother and she came to live at...

    I Miss My Grandmother

    My gram died today. She had been sick for awhile and very sad. I know she is at peace, but my heart still aches knowing that I cannot see her. She treated me like a son more than a grandson; her own son died the day he was born. I think she always felt I had some of her son in me...

    I pray everyday that my grandma is in a better

    place. I guess she will always be in my thoughts. I feel bad as the few years before she died she had Alzheimer's and I was not there for her. To me she was already gone. It was a painful last few years for her & she didn't deserve it. I love her & I miss her.

    My grandma always told me I was beautiful

    and was very supportive. She had her favourites though of which I was not one. I have had very few people in my life tell me I'm good or beautiful. I miss her.

    She was amazing and I think of her every day

    and cry for her often. She was like my second mother growing up and watching her slowly get weak and then die was one of the worst things ever. I am still thankful that I got to spend her final year and half with her.

    10:00 pm October 4, 2015 The pain is still

    fresh, still very raw.... Not a day goes by in which I don't cry, in which I don't think of her. She was more than my grandma - she was my rock, she was my friend, she was my heart. She was the one person I could call for any & no reason. The one person I always ran to when I...

    When I was very young I used to pray to God to

    take my life before my Grandmother's so I wouldn't see the day she dies because I knew I couldn't handle it. That is one prayer God didn't answer... I remember when it all started. "The End", I mean. She started bloating on the left side of her body, they took her to the...

    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...
