to be so missed as this


my last living grandparent passed away yesterday afternoon. luckily my mothers flight was problem-free and she was able to say goodbye to her mom. as for me, i chose not to see her that way since she wasn't really responsive or awake. instead i chose to remember her as the most awesome, strong and independent person i've ever known.

my grandmother was shorter than 5 feet but taller than us all in spirit and personality. my earliest memories include her, some nick at night, a smoky house, and banana and butter sandwiches (gross right...). she made the best meat pie (not gross, trust me..). she used to tease my husband relentlessly. i have stories upon stories to keep her fresh in my mind and heart. like all our shopping sprees to ann&hope. that time she smacked me clear across the face in the restaurant (i totally deserved it). yellow footy pajamas and sleepovers at her house. i will miss her sincerely and often. pray for my family, we all loved her so much.
