My grandmother passed away yesterday, and I barely even got a goodbye. It was two years ago that I last saw her. Goodnight sweet grandmother. I’m sorry I never got to say goodbye, but lives end when they will and there is nothing we can ever do to stop it. I hope things are happier for you now.

  1. Be happy for what she’s left behind. I feel sad reading your post today. I imagined she lived her life to the fullest.

  2. Oh I am so sorry to hear this…death is a debt to be paid by all….Well, here I remember a poem by John Donne “Death be not proud”….

    “DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
    Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
    For, those, whom thou think’st, thou dost overthrow,
    Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.”
