It is a very sad day!

It is a very sad day today....:0( My grandmother passed away just a few hours ago... She would have been 90 next Monday.... She really did live a good long life but, she will truly be missed by all whom she touched....

She always loved to tell me story's about when I was young and I would sit on her lap in the kitchen and play cards with her... She would tell me how I would take all the cards say they were mine and cheat, she always laughed after she told me it... LOL
She really did love with all of her heart and to feel love like that just once in your life makes you blessed.... I do not remember those days but, I remember the love that she had for me, how she hugged me tight and kissed my cheeks first thing every time I have been home to see her..... She had this sparkle in her eyes and the best smile, I have been told that I have that same sparkle and a great smile too...
We both also have a raised mole on the left side of our faces... Hers was a little closer to her ear and mine is on my cheek... She told me once that her mother had one as well and it was even closer to her ear than hers was... I laughed and told her great if I ever have kids it will be on their nose... It made her laugh...

I hope that she knew just how much I loved her....

This photo is from the last time I was home in MI. this is my grandma and I...

May you rest in peace..... Gram....:0)

Oh honey! I am sooo sorry to hear this. No matter how much we "expect" them to move on and know that they are old and their life is fabulous and everything is wonderful...the loss is still difficult.

Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. ((HUGS)) Much love.

Flexie--

What wonderful journaling you have to make a "tribute" page of your grandmother. With your describing of your stories of you and your grandmother, I could "hear" the laughter. I am crying, too. My last grandparent ( maternal grandmother @ age 93 ) died last April 2007 on Good Friday. Thanks for the memories.

I need to do a page of some of the memories of my grandmother, too.

I love the photo of you two--- you can see the LOVE.

Hugs---

Linda
