If I don't blog today then I will be stuck in that post-sad-news blogging gulf and there is no easy way out of there.  We are all very sad over here.  Grandma had an excellent last run and, as Katie pointed out, at least there were hot wings.

It's hard to be so far from my family right now.  My sister is trying to move into her new house and prepare for her new puppy, and I am trying to work on two assignments due early this week, and we are all trying to deal with what it means to not have Grandma with us now and not think ahead to the next family gathering when she isn't somewhere slipping morsels to Koala.

Look at those two comrades.

So here we are, in this new space where Grandma's not sick anymore but she's not here either, and we have to figure out how this works.

Thanks for your nice words, friends.

I'm thinking about you, this evening, and send you a hug and some strength to move forward.
I'm sorry about Grandma.

I am sorry for your loss.

Your love for her shines through your writing and so the memories that you have will always sparkle. She will never be very far away.

My grandmother died three years ago, after becoming sicker and sicker for several years before. The loss changes your heart forever, but you'll be surprised how soon you start to feel joy in knowing she's no longer sick, no longer suffering. And then the happy memories come back and are all the more precious.
