sad news

i just got news that my grandmother passed away. it wasn't totally unexpected because she'd been ill since the beginning of the year. but we had been hoping that she was getting a bit better, so the news is still surprising.

i'm sad that i hadn't gone to see her when my parents went to the hospital this afternoon (i didn't want to go with my germs). i'm sad that i didn't get to talk to her more. i'm sad that my kids have lost a great-grandparent. i'm sad that my dad doesn't have either of his parents anymore.

Man oh man, tough couple weeks - baby not cooperating, feeling sick, and now this. I'm sorry to hear your sad news. I'm sure your grandma lived a long time, though.

That is sad news. I'm sorry you didn't get to see her one last time. Sending good thoughts your way. Take care.

thank you for your condolences. since it wasn't totally unexepected we're getting by okay. in a weird way it really hasn't sunk in yet that my grandma is gone. tomorrow is the funeral so i think that's when the tears will really start flowing. all i can hope is that she didn't suffer too terribly in the end and she's reunited with my grandpa.

Yucaree, I'm so sorry. I can't believe I was away while this happened. I remember feeling exactly this way when my mom's mom passed away. God. I feel so awful that I didn't check in here sooner! I don't know what to say except I'm sorry!!!
