Loss

My Grandma :*(

Yesterday afternoon my mom called to tell me that my Gram wasn't doing well and we weren't sure how much time she had left.  Just the day before, she went out to eat at a restaurant and went to the mall over the weekend.  She was asking my mom about booking their next trip to Atlantic City.  Her body was 98 years old but her soul, still a young lady.  I got to her house where my mom, Aunt, sister, and cousins were all gathered around her.  A priest came over and we prayed together.  She was holding on and didn't want to let go.  I left shortly after 1am when I said my final good-byes.  I asked her to hold Ava for me and kiss her face when she sees her.  By the time I got home and settled she had passed.  I truly believe that she waited for me to leave before she could let go...she knew the pain that I've already been through and didn't want to put me through watching her take her last breath.  She will be missed dearly, but I am comforted to know that she is with my sweet Ava now. 

The temporary grave marker that I got for Ava reads the following, and I want to quote it for my Grandma today:

"If love alone could have spared you....you would have lived forever"

Re: My Grandma :*(

  • Sorry for the loss of your grandma Meli!
     
    I had similar thoughts when my little Diana passed. I was thinking of my grandma and my aunt who passed away few years ago and that they will take care of my little girl. It does not lessen the pain but is comforting to think she is not alone.
    The saying is beautiful!
  • Awww, I'm so, so sorry sweetheart.  I'm glad you at least got to visit her one more time and got to say good-bye.  I almost lost my grandma last year on Christmas.  It's just horrible. The first time we saw her conscious she just kept saying she was so sorry, and then she closed her eyes and her jaw stopped shaking (medication was causing it).  We thought she let go.  I told her she wasn't allowed to meet Corbin yet.  I know your grandma is with Ava, holding her, giving her tons of kisses and not letting her go until you get there.  Sounds like your grandma had a beautiful and long life.  She will be missed.  {{{HUGE HUGS}}}

  • I'm so sorry for your loss.  I had a similar situation in that my grandmother got really sick when I was in college.  She went into the hospital the Mon of Thanksgiving.  I couldn't get home to see her until Wed.  She passed early Thurs (on Thanksgiving).  I truly feel like she held on until she saw me.
