Sadness

My grandmother died this weekend. We knew it was coming, her battle with lung cancer has been a long and hard one on her. I'm grateful her suffering is over, but I will miss her every day and love her more than I got a chance to tell her. I know she's better off. I know she is at peace, but my heart aches every time I think about the millions of good memories I have of her.

Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. I would appreciate that a bunch.

I won't be here. Her visitation is Monday and funeral Tuesday, so please understand my absence. 

Find time to tell your family you love them. Find time to share life with them and make memories where you can.

See you all next week!

  1. Be safe and take care! My thoughts are with you and your family. I just unexpectedly lost my second grandfather a couple of months ago, and it still seems surreal not to hear him rattling around in the den at my grandmother's house.

    We'll be here waiting when you get back.

  2. So sorry, Colene. I know how you feel because my grandma also passed away this weekend. She was almost 90 so we knew it was coming too, but still...there is a big hole in our family now. I am so thankful that I had such amazing grandparents for so many years of my life! Best wishes to you and your family during this difficult time.

  23. I am sorry to hear that and know how you feel. Treasure your memories. I often talk to those who have died. I know they can hear me. At least it gives me peace if I think of something that needs to be said.

  24. My grandfather unexpectedly passed away in his sleep on May 13th. Just today I had a happy memory of him and smiled despite the tears. We know they have to leave us - and it's okay to be sad. Hugs to you and yours.

  30. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother, Colene. This past weekend I participated in my town's Relay for Life in support of the American Cancer Society; I'm hoping for a future that holds a cancer cure. Wishing you and your family many blessings, peace, and comfort at this difficult time. <3
