One Last Letter to G’ma

Monday, August 6th, 2007

My grandma passed away towards the end of last month and it’s been sort of a melancholy-sweet kind of thing. That’s like bittersweet but not so much with the badness. G’ma had been failing for quite some time and at the end I’m not sure she knew where or even who she was. Mumses said she wasn’t in pain or frightened, which is good, but she also couldn’t see, eat or move unassisted, and was on quite a bit of medication. For the past year G’ma was either sleeping most of the time or hanging around in a fog until she fell asleep which really isn’t much of a life. At least now she’s free to go hang with her friends, sibs and husband who all died before she did and give them a piece of her mind. She’d totally do that too.

Anyway, I thought I’d write her one last letter.
