My children never cease to amaze me with their strength and their tenacity. Over the last few days, they have faced challenges that will forever be a part of them. (Most of which I believe are better left unsaid.) Last Monday night, I got the call that their Grandmother had passed away. They have cried for their loss, and they have tried to be grateful that she is no longer suffering. But it has been hard. Both kids were extremely close to her, and as the only grandchildren, they were the apple of her eye. CG summed it up when she read the following at the funeral on Friday…..
“To describe my Grandma in one sentence is pretty much impossible. She was nothing short of incredible to me, my brother and anyone who touched her heart. She was so stubborn and anyone who was close with her can verify that, but she was also the solid rock of the family.I cried as she and her brother stood before a packed funeral home and with all the strength and courage they could master, said goodbye to their grandmother.
I’ll always remember her amazing Freckles cooking, the many lessons she taught me and her ability to make me laugh in any given situation.
After my grandma was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, she was still a ball of spitfire and always amazed me with her strength.
Overall, she was strong, good hearted and most of all…. My hero. I’ll be missing her presence, but in my heart she’s as close to me as ever.
I love you Grandma!
Always and Forever!”
We’ll all be missin’ you Sue…… Rest in peace.
