~~Saying Good-Bye~~

Is the hardest part of losing someone you love. Today I had to say good-bye to my grandmother for the last time. I don't think that the full impact of her death has hit me yet but I know that today was awful. I miss her like crazy and there is nothing I can do about it. My family has gotten closer since all this started, and I am speaking to a cousin I have not spoken to in over 3 years. The service was very moving. The reverend that spoke is the reverend who has been with our family for over 40 years. He has walked side by side wih my grandmother through the many events that made up her life. He is 91 years old and blind and he did the service from his heart and memories. It was very nice to know that she had him all these years through all her trials and tribulations as well as her joys and triumphs. Thank you to everyone for all your kind words and for the many prayers.

(((((HUGS))))) I'm so sorry B, I wish I could sit and have a cup of coffee with you, and try to comfort, as you did with me when my grandpa died.

I know she was so special to you.

It seems intrusive to make a 'first comment' against this post, but still - love and prayers to you and your family. I am glad the Reverend's participation meant so much to you and that someone so obviously frail felt your gran was that special - a real compliment. Bittersweet.
Hope you are holding up; (((hugs))) if you'll have them from a new visitor, and thanks for dropping by.
