Sad family news

My Grandmother passed away this morning.

It was my Dad's mom and my last grandparent. I was hoping EJ would have been able to meet at least one of his great-grandparents, but all of Ed's are gone as well. She was 91 and very ready to go. She's been suffering from Alzheimer's for about a year and her mind and body were just deteriorating, so this is one of those times where you say death is a good thing and she won't suffer anymore. But I'm still very sad about it.

I'm sorry, Maria. I lost both my grandmothers in 2007, and know that feeling that I wish they could have met the baby just once. Alzheimers is awful--one of my grandparents had it, too. My heart goes out to you and your family.

I'm so sorry Maria. EJ has another guardian angel watching out for him. As always, you are in my prayers. I will keep the rest of your family in my thoughts as well. Hugs

Such sad news, Maria. While you're glad she is no longer suffering, I'm sure it's a bittersweet since you wanted her and EJ to meet. Love and prayers to you & your family.
