My Grandma died
Monday, January 15, 2007

My grandma died this morning from a chest infection.

She went in hospital on saturday evening and by this morning her condition had deteriorated.

Feeling pretty crappy.

I guess suddenly the theme choice for your latest BSR work, with the song "Mournig Sad Morning", makes a lot more sense. :(

Making art can be very healing, though. Not so much that we can forget the death of a loved one -- but I don't think we are supposed to, anyway.

Keep flyin'! And we'll be flyin' right there with you!

My grandma died in 1974 and I still think of her nearly 2-3 times a week. Give it some time. It will hurt for a long time but it will get better. Pretty soon you'll remember the time she got drunk and cut the carrots to big for the stew. Or the time she got her first traffic ticket at the age of 63 and you made her laugh til she cried.

My heart goes out to you this day.

Oh hobbleit...I am truly sorry to hear of this:(

Losing someone, especially a grandparent, has never been easy. It's even worse when you had a certain type of relationship with them that makes their passing that much harder to stomach.

jossisagod is right...your grandmother's in a happier place and I can imagine that she wouldn't want you to get wrapped up in grief. Though grief is necessary and needed right now...but there will come a point where the memories will bring a smile rather than tears.

I'm so very sorry to hear this. You and your family have my best wishes.

P.S. Just ignore the part about attachment leading to greed. It's B.S.

I am truly sorry for your loss. But as the great Jedi Master Yoda said, “Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not." I took comfort in Yoda's words when my Gandparents died, and I hope you might as well.

Oh, my sweet Hobbleit. There's no such thing as a good death. It's never easy for those of us that remain. I will not attempt trying to make you feel better now, as the hurt must come out and be dealt with. But, know in time the hurt will become easier to bear and you can focus on fonder times in your memory.

Our thoughts are with you.

I am so sorry for your loss. Our grandparents are part of us, always; the pillars of our lives. So very, very sorry for you. Please know that.

Condolences to you and yours, Hobbleit.
I lost my brother 18 months ago and even though it might not feel like it right now the time will eventually come when you will be able to think of her and smile instead of cry...give yourself time.

*hugs you tight* I'm so sorry for your loss :( If you ever need to talk, vent, anything, don't hesitate to PM me *hugs again* I'll be here for you.

I am very sorry to hear that. Wishing all the best for you and your family.

I'm so sorry.

Having lost my share of relatives, all I can say is to take the time you need to grieve. Your friends and family will wait until you're ready to move on.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss..may the healing start soon and your memories be cherished..

I'm sorry to hear that. This is a rough time for you...just remeber to keep your friends and family close, and try and concentrate on the good memories rather than how it all ended. Sometime in the future you might even find yourself chuckling at a funny memory without having to purposefully think about it. If all else fails, chocolate and bad "B-grade" Hallmark movies can go a long way in kickstarting the healing process.

Deaths in the family are no good. Both my grandparents died march last year. one on the first, one on the thirty first.

I hope things look up for you soon.
