family

My grandma has been in the hospital. Monday night everyone was there to say our goodbyes.
I’m a bit sad. But I understand death, I know you live your life and that the end cannot be avoided.
I am more sad for my mother and her siblings who this is affecting more because it is their mother.
I know grandparents pass – it is normal.

As we were all sitting in the hospital room with her I was actually happy. I know she would love knowing that we were all there surrounding her; even laughing and joking about the good times.

My grandmother is Catholic. I know she believes in something more than this life here. Although I cannot say I do a part of me does hope that her faith is giving her comfort and that her belief that she will see her husband again is helping her through this.

  1. I’m sorry that you’re going through that, but I can relate and have been where you are. I agree that the hardest part was watching my mom grieve for the loss of her mother. I will be thinking of you and your family.
