my grandmother

My grandmother (my dad's mom) passed away last week after many difficult years. (Yes, my mom's mom passed away the month before...two funerals in just a few months. Strange.)

Through my journey with Maxwell, I seem to have become more comfortable with the life cycle and the reality of death. But it still is emotional to say goodbye to a loved family member....especially to see your father hurting so much as he grieves the loss of his mother.

Goodbye Gramamil...we hope you have found peace and joy reuniting with loved ones.

*I was able to fly back to WV for the funeral last weekend. Max stayed here since he had was only three days post-surgery.

Sorry to hear of your loss. In my journey with Joshua I am no longer afraid of death, and have realized that you can still have a deep, meaningful relationship with someone who has passed. It is hard for some to grasp that idea, and it doesn't take away from the need to mourn, but hope that your father finds some comfort in knowing he will be reunited with his mother once again. It is hard not to have the physical person here, and emotionally draining for you to have two funerals in such a short time. Be well. Love, comfort, and hugs being sent your way.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of going to her house when we were young. May God comfort your father in his time of loss.

I am so sorry to hear this, Amy. Grandmothers are such special people. I hope happy memories comfort you in this difficult time, and I am so glad you were able to be with your family. xoxo

Oh, Amy. I am so sorry for your loss. The loss of two dear family members in such a short time is so difficult. (My grandfathers passed away five weeks apart, so I can empathize with you, friend.)
I am glad you were able to fly back to WV to attend the service and be with your family.
Sending you love...
