My Grandmother Has Passed On...

My Grandmother passed away yesterday. I had been hoping and praying that she would find the peace she needed and be able to let go and move on into the light. But when the moment came and I was beside her watching her labored breathing and I realized that there wasn't going to be another breath...I just wanted to yell 'come back'.

I remember the day my beloved grandmother passed away and the last moment I held her hand. I will never forget that day but as the years have passed I realize that that day is overshadowed by the many, many other days that we spent together. May the sadness you feel today soon pass and give way to beautiful memories of your grandmother.

Big hugs to you!
