My grandmother...

My grandmother and I, March 2007.

On December 26, the morning after Christmas, my grandmother passed away.  The day before (Christmas), she was placed into hospice care at the hospital, so we knew that it wouldn't be long.  She had been unwell for quite some time.  So I can't say that it wasn't expected.  But somehow that doesn't make it hurt any less, just because we knew that it was coming...

I saw her in the hospital a couple of weeks before she passed away, mostly because I knew that when she would see Iggy that it made her smile.

My grandmother was beautiful.  I will miss her very very much.

  1. I totally feel this post. I just lost my grandma on December 8. I was NOT expecting it at all. I was very lucky to have had her here as long as I did, but I still miss her like crazy. The whole thing still doesn't seem real yet.

    I love the pictures of your grandma - that SMILE!! She looks like she was a very happy lady!!

    1. Thanks Melanie. It's been a rough (and long) holiday. Today's the first time I've even had the chance to sit down since it happened...!

  2. I am truly sorry for your loss. You're right - knowing it's coming doesn't make it hurt any less.
