End of an era

NewFNP said goodbye to her grandma this past Sunday. What a wonderful gift to have had her all these years and to have been able to take care of her in a way that honored her life and the extraordinary role that she played in newFNP's life. NewFNP and her brother were by her grandma's side as she took her final breaths and slipped away.


A very special lady, who taught newFNP the fun of shopping and girl time, who indulged newFNP's love of middle school reading with the entire Sweet Valley High collection, who slaved over newFNP's prom dress with her, who loved newFNP equally during her darkest hours and when she was shining her brightest, she will be missed and she will be treasured.

And she will always, always be loved.

My condolences for your loss.
From your past writings I know she was special and meant a lot to you. She will live on in your memories and the stories you will tell about her now and long into the future.

I am sorry for your loss, there are not words adequate to express the sorrow. Memories are free and can be used over and over again.

Indeed the love of one's grandparents is truly special. I am so sorry for your loss and I thank you for sharing your memories of her.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you.. My grandma was the light of my life and has been gone for over 15 years.. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of something that she said or did while she was here..

You and your grandma were very lucky to have one another! I'm so sorry. If its cathartic for you to tell grandma stories, feel free to share some here. My grandfather died in January and we've been going through his house and telling stories and remembering funny things about him and its been helpful.
