    So, my grandma passed away yesterday. She was 88 and in a nursing home for a few years and she was ready to go, I think so anyway. It was something that was expected to come and we knew that she wasn't doing well last week, but its still so sad. I made the decision to not see her in the nursing home while she was there. Its what worked for me and just wasn't the way I wanted to remember her. I'm not feeling badly about that decision, but I feel so sad that she died alone. I'm not even really sad that she passed on because she really wanted to a couple of years ago, but I can't stop thinking about what it must be like to be old. Most of her friends had passed on already, her husband passed away many many years ago, my mom went to see her daily, but that was it. Its just so sad. The funeral is on Friday and it will just be our family, which is really small. I'm much more sad than I expected to be (don't take that the wrong way).

    Thanks for letting me share...

    Kelly I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your grandmother. it's never easy and thinking we will react one way and then when the time comes having a different thought process on it is totally normal.

    Just think she's off in a better happier place now :0)

    Big hugs!

      I'm sorry for your loss. :-( She's at peace now and partying up in heaven I'm sure! I think as people get older they become more prepared to pass on. My great-grandmother had her box with the dress she wanted to be buried in and all of the instructions for her funeral ready to go for about 10 years.

        Oh Kelly, I am so sorry. Sadly, I know exactly what you mean though. It's so sad and scary to be that old and alone. Even though it was expected, it's still a loss, so my thoughts are with you.

                    I'm sorry for your loss. I was just telling a story today about my grandma who passed away 2 years ago. I miss her, but I have so many great memories & stories that she is still a big part of my life.

                    After she passed, I spent a lot of time organizing pictures I had of her. I finally scanned them and backed up the files and the shared them with family.
