Sorry for your loss, God bless
So sorry for your loss. Remember the good times.
When my mom passed in hospice, my two sisters were always at her side.
I traveled 600 km to see her, she passed two nights after seeing each other.
I believe it was her only wish to see me once again. then she could let go.
hang in there, friend.
So sorry for your loss.
Condolences to you and your family! May your Grandmother rest in peace.
I was definitely shook when my paternal grandmother died. I was almost as close to her as I was my own Mom.
I would consider finding an artist to convert that still picture into a still life painting
Maybe @hemingway could do it, he's an awesome artist.I have a buddy that’s pretty awesome at drawing I might ask him to do something.
Brother my thoughts are with you and your family. I know this may not be of much consolation, but I read in this a closeness that is much deeper and more real and lasting than any physical proximity. I hope you don't minding me saying so, and again, my deepest condolences.I try not to get to personal but I’ve posted a time or two previously with my grandmas struggles, the struggle we as a family have had to do to help her which we collectively were more than were happy to do.
We spent Christmas in the hospital last month and got her home a few weeks ago. She had been doing better than her previous returns from the hospital but still required 24/7 care with my uncle pulling all week since he’s retired and my mom pulling weekend duty. Mom being a nurse she really got on her about doing better which was working.
I went to the store after work yesterday and had a random thought, I’m going to buy grandma some roses since I recall those being her favorite. Why? It just crossed my mind then and I can’t tell you why. I gave them to mom last night before she went up for weekend duty and granny loved them.
9:30 this morning I got the call you never want. My mom was in a hysterical mumble I couldn’t make out and heard sirens in the background. All I remember was you better get in your truck and hurry, I’m a half hour away. Twenty minutes later I got the second worse call from my uncle, we lost her.
Mom is kicking herself for not doing something sooner when she had a feeling something was off but went into action and did her part until ems arrived.
She was 87, you’re never ready for this despite knowing her age and the recent history she’s had. She was my second mom spending the summers with her growing up. The sweetest lady everybody loved. She was a big baker throughout her life and love dishing everybody cookies and goodies for ages. The memories from being kids and she loved Walmart runs and would give my brother and I each five bucks to buy whatever we wanted. All the movie nights with sleeping bags on the floor and her awesome meals. I could write a book but I’ll spare you but needed to vent.
There’s a huge hole in my heart, I’m still trying to wrap my head around it. I’m trying to wrap my head around the random idea of buying her the roses and the timing of what’s happened. Mom said their next move after getting ready this morning was taking a picture of her holding the roses I got her but they didn’t get that far.
Miss ya granny
