    So yea...as the title says...my grandmother passed away yesterday. I got a call yesterday morning from my mother saying that she received her last rights...got another call in the afternoon saying she was sedated and that she wasn't going to wake up...and the last call was last night saying she passed peacefully. She wasn't doing well for a long time. Her arthritis was getting worse and worse and she had a few strokes that affected her greatly.

    I am just happy I got to see her two weeks ago and I guess when I saw her I knew she wasn't going to live for much longer. She was a beautiful person...inside and out. Always kind...funny...always told me I was her favorite. I am going to miss her greatly.

    Rest in peace grandma...we will see each other again.

    So sorry for the loss of your beloved grandmother, Alexander. Grandmothers are very special to us..........mine raised me (along with my grandfather). I think of them every day. You will too...........and in a way, she'll be with you for the rest of your life - and in the hereafter. Just keep her in mind, and live your life in a way that she'd want you to. May you have a whole lot of great memories to comfort you.

    This brought back sad memories of when my grandfather passed away. Sounds like you had a wonderful relationship with her. I think you meant a lot to her.
