I agree...I think most elderly people just accept it. They spend so much time watching others pass on that they make peace with the fact that they will as well. My grandmother spends more time in the hospital with sick/dying friends & relatives than she does at home. It's kind of sad, but it's pretty much her social life! I few years back I went to the funeral home & did a pre-arrangement with her. It was weird, but it was something that she wanted to do & I was honored that she asked me to do it with her.

Kelly;

 

I am so sorry for your loss. It's easy to justify that it's "ok becaue they're old and have had a good life" but it doesn't take away the pain you feel about losing someone you've known your whole life.

 

I lost my grandfather in April. I think your decision to keep your memories of her before the end was a good one. I was with my grandfather when he passed and I have trouble getting some of those last images out of my mind when I think of him, even though his passing was more peaceful than I every could have expected. I'm still not sure I made the right decision being there or not.

 

I hope you and your family are able to find some ways to celebrate her life even as you mourn her passing.

Kelly, I am so sorry for your loss.

My great aunt died a few weeks ago at the age of 95. My cousin, her son, kept telling us not to be sad because she had lived a great, long life.

It's hard not to be sad when someone we love dies, and getting old is scary, but it makes me remember that LIVING is what it's all about, so that when I am in my 80s I can say that I had a fantastic time getting there!

Hey everyone, I just wanted to thank you all so much for the kind words and thoughts. I really appreciate it and love BDW for providing a place to receive support from "strangers" (even though in my head I act like I know most of you lol).

 

The funeral was this morning and it was actually nice to see her at rest. It was sad, but seeing her go to a place next to her late husband was really comforting to me. Again, thank you all. {hugs}

I am so sorry to hear about your grandma, it's never easy to lose a loved one-- no matter how old or young. I'm happy to hear the funeral went well, and am sure she's still got her eye on you from afar. Hugs.

I'm very sorry for your loss and my thoughts are with you and your family! I understand completely the emotions you go through when you lose someone close and when it's a long illness you are bound to react a different way then originally thought...alot of time passed in between...take care!

Kelly, I'm so sorry. Even when you expect the end it is still hard and it does force you to think about the future.

 

How are you doing since the funeral? Is your mom ok? My mother had a hard time after my grandmother passed away. She said she felt like an orphan.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
