I love my grammy

I had a friend come up from Florida this past weekend and we went to D.C. and did the whole tourist thing. We were walking around having a great time until my mom called and told me that my Grandmom passed away. So I'm now in New Jersey, waiting for the funeral tomorrow.

I'm a little sad about my grammy but for the most part I've been in good spirits because of all the fond memories I have of her. I hope after I pass away people think the same way. Why be sad? Remember all the good times, share stories and laugh. Although I'm sure tomorrow when I see her looking beautiful in her casket, I'll be crying like a baby.

I was going to bring Ethan with me but he would've missed too much school. So I'm missing him like crazy. I've called him so much that he's probably getting sick of talking to me. I just miss my little boogie-woogie.

Anyway, I hope y'all are doing fantastic (even you, anonymous) and having a great day!

I'm sorry for your loss, and glad that you can remember a wonderful person. I think that's about the best anyone can hope for, to be remembered with love.

I'm so sorry about your grandmother. That's horrible.

Where in in NJ are you?

you have my condolences as well april.

when i lost my grandmother, i did the same thing.. i remembered the good times..

i didnt cry at the funeral.. til my cousin threw her arms around me bawling.. then i started to cry.. i hate other people's pain. and it makes me sad to see them in pain.. but at the funeral, i just kind of distanced myself...like it wasnt really happening...

i hope you feel better soon.. as soon as you get home, cuddle the munster..that will help!

I think that the happy way is always the better way to approach death. We should all have Irish wakes wherein people sit around and get trashed, remembering all the great stuff the person who died did and said. That's how I want people to celebrate my life after I die! So, have a cold one for Grammy. I know I will when my last grandparent goes too (Maw Maw is 91 and in failing health, but still mentally healthy enough to sneeze by saying "horseshit!" so she's got some time left!).

So sorry for your loss. When my grandmother passed, I never cried upon hearing the "news" nor at the funeral. We said our good-byes many months prior. That was when I cried. She 89, lived a good life, and was ready to go.....that was all according to her.

My mom and I, infact, actually cracked up laughing during the mass. Not about death or any other issue. The singer who was tied to the church just sucked. I made some comment, in my grandmother's voice that sent my mom and I into hysterics. I know, you had to be there. I know she (grandma) was laughing also. Take care and stay warm.

Sorry to hear about your loss.

It's always good to hold on to the good stuff.

It's a shame better circumstances didn't bring you one state away.

Sweetheart... sorry for your loss. I was in New Jersey about this time last year paying last respects to my grandmother, as well. I gained a lot of strength that day, thinking about how stubborn and strong that woman was, and how much we are alike. Stay safe...

Sorry about your Grandma, April, but you have a great frame of mind so it sounds like you'll be ok. Ethans are easy to miss. Haha. That's my nephew's name.

Awww, you have my sympathies. Six years later, I still miss my grandma like crazy.

One day I'll write a book... said...
