View Full Version : My Grandma died yesterday............
At 2.58pm yesterday afternoon my Grandma passed away. She had been in hospital the last two weeks suffering from Cancer which had also lead to her have to having a shunt in her kidneys and clots in her lungs plus many other problems. It was quite sudden.....it all happened in a matter of weeks. I went up to the hospital yesterday after she passed on and stroked her hair and told her all the things I wanted to say.....she looked so peaceful. It was so nice to see her at peace as she has been in alot of pain. I am feeling so sad :crying: can't stop crying. She adored my son and spoilt him....she knitted all these toys for him and while I was pregnant with him spent months knitting a beautiful blanket for him. She was a wonderful strength and support for me. She gave these really strong cuddles that made me feel so safe and secure. I am currently 13 weeks pregnant and I wish so much that she could be here to see my new baby....I know that sounds a bit selfish but thats how I feel. My heart breaks for my Grandad.....they have been married 60 years this Wednesday........he is overwhelmed with grief. Anyway, just had to get some feelinings off my chest. Thanks for listening.
Emma, I am so sorry to hear about your grandma. I know too well how special the grandies can be in our lives.
Cry and vent all you need, never feel the need to be strong for anyone in these moments.
My thoughts are with you. Its so sad when someone so important leaves us. Take care.
Emma, I am awful sorry to hear your news. How heartbreaking, especially as it was so sudden. I am glad that you got to say goodbye to her and see her at peace. I am sure that she will be with you in some way when you have your lovely new baby. And both your children will be a consolaton for your poor Grandad. You don't sound selfish at all - you sound like a girl who loved and was loved by a wonderful Grandmother.
Oh Emma. I am so sorry to hear that sad news. Hug your little one tight, and make sure that William is around to give your grandfather lots of hugs too. Your new baby will grow up knowing about your grandmother and will have someone special watching over her from above.
I'm sorry to hear about that Emma! Take your time and grieve, as Seekrit said you don't have to be strong! We're all here for you! :hugs:
Hello Emma, I am so sorry to hear about your grandma. It is such a hard time when someone goes away. The toys and blanket she knitted for William sound very special; what a lucky boy he is.
I am very sorry about the loss of your Grandma. Take time to grieve and look after yourself.
I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandma. Sending you lots of :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: in this time of sadness.
I'm so sorry about the loss of your Grandma.She sounded like a lovely lady.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time.
I lost my great-aunt, who was like a second grandmother to me, late last year to cancer.
Like your grandmother, my great aunt was in hospital for about 2 weeks before passing away. I went to see her the day before she died and said everything I needed to say and thanked her for being such a wonderful and inspirational person to me and both my boys.
It is such a sad time and one of the things that made me feel so sad was that my two sons probably won't remember her as they get older and that would be a great shame.
I did truly believe that my great-aunt had lived a full life and that she was ready to go...I just wasn't ready to let go...
Emma, am so sorry to hear about your Grandma.
Take great and gentle care of yourself and your family.
Thank you all so much for your kind and beautiful replies.........they mean so very much to me.
Emma I'm very sorry to hear of your sad loss and I know exactly how you feel on all accounts I recently went thru this very same thing. I just had my daughter & I have a very special story that I would be only to happy to share with you if you'd like. It will make ur heart smile. Just let me know if you'd like me to share it with you.
Take care & big :hugs: to you
Emma I'm sorry to hear of your sad loss. Nana's are such special people and I'm sure this has left a huge hole in your life but you will be able to rest assure that she is no longer suffering.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this sad time.
You are so blessed to have shared so much of this wonderful woman's life. I'm sure that she will be looking down on the birth of her next grandchild - she will always be with you.
Repay her wonderful kindness by being there for your grandfather. He will be lost without her and will need all of the support you can muster.
My thoughts are with you.:hugs:
