Without saying much, as my extended family gets upset if I share personal info and I want to respect them, my grandmother?Momma?is not long for this world. Hospice has been called and she is just fading away. She is this frail, little thing now... it breaks my heart.
I'll write an eulogy and post it on my blog (and share a link here) because mere words cannot express the impact my grandmother has made upon my family. She's lived 92 years?almost 3 without my grandfather?and she deserves peace and dignity.
I spent a few hours there this afternoon?with Aaron?and while for the most part she was out of it, there were a few moments of lucidity. She called my son "Tattie Shayna" (handsome little man) and Tattelah. She knew him. And she smiled. Faint, but it was a smile.
I told her I loved her and she looked at me. She knew me.
I'll let you know when she passes. I hope it's peaceful and that she's with Poppa again soon.
