My grandma (dad's mom) passed away last Sunday night and the service was
Thursday. She was 92 and the Lord was very good to her in the end. She
simply closed her eyes while sitting in the recliner and slipped away.
She lived alone but my aunt from Arkansas was visiting, so she wasn't
alone when it happened.

Now this Sunday (yesterday) my mom's half brother calls and says my
grandpa (mom's stepdad) died early yesterday morning. She's out of town
and I was finally able to reach her last night. I don't know yet when
the services will be. He had some *** clots that went into his lungs
and he didn't last long after that. He was already using oxygen regular.
Sad thing is, even w/ him on the oxygen in the house, my grandma still
wouldn't stop smoking.

It's just pretty unbelievable. I've never lost two people inside of a
week of each other like this. I had one absence in my heart and now I
have another. I'm not one to share any of my personal business w/ the
group. Maybe that's why Dave thinks I'm shy? I just felt the need to
share this. Thanks for reading.

So, sorry to hear of your losses.  They are awfully close and I bet you're
heart is broken.  It just takes time to heal the heart.  I think of all your
great memories with your loved ones or about them and it will help you
through this rough time.

Hugs,
Lynne

Katrina I'm sorry for your losses. I lost my dad and his wife and my son in
law all within a few weeks of each other last year. Multiple loss like this
is just hard to deal with as any loss is and takes a while as you sort
through all the feelings. I'll be thinking of you.

Thanks everybody. Grandpa's service is going to be Thursday. I'm hoping
all goes well, as mom's family can be a little rough around the collar.
Unlike dad's family. I haven't talked w/ grandma yet but I'm told by
both my uncle's wife and my aunt that she's very angry right now. They
were married 53 yrs. Longer than I realized. She didn't even want to
have any kind of service but my two aunts arranged everything.

Tomarrow is the anniversary of my dad's death, 9yrs. I've been thinking
about him alot too. I need to start my book of me and s***some
childhood pics to put in it. Maybe that'll get me feeling better. S***
some pics of everybody.
