August 24, 1919 - September 24, 2009

Well - going home didn't really end my crappy day...

My mom called yesterday with some sad news.

My grandmother passed away yesterday evening - exactly one month after her 90th birthday.

I'm trying to figure out how to get all of us up there as I type...

I hate that I didn't argue with T a little harder to let me go up there for her birthday. I really wish I had gotten to see her and say good bye.

Oh, Donna. I am so sorry. I know how incredibly hard it is to lose a source of inspiration and love. Our grandmothers are our history. I pray that you find healing during the waking process. God bless.

Wow, I am so, so sorry. Grandmas are so special, and even though I wasn't close to mine, I miss her sometimes. I can't imagine how you must feel right now.

hugs, hugs, hugs

I'm so sorry. I was very close to my grandmother as well - and like you missed the chance to see her the night before she died. It just makes it sting a little more.

I hope you are holding up O.K. - Take care of yourself.
