Peace.

Early this morning, my beloved grandmother suddenly passed away.

I feel like my breath has been taken from me. She was the perfect wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and lived only to serve others.

I can only hope that one day I can live up to be half of the woman she was. I am grateful that we never watched her suffer. I know God has a plan for us all and that she is truly at peace now.

    I am so sorry for you loss. I’m glad that she didn’t suffer, that is always the worse, watching loved ones suffer. We just lost my husbands grandpa this year and it was very tough–especially being 3000 miles away from everyone.

    Although you must be heartbroken over loosing your grandmother, rest assured that this is a joyous time. She is able to finally leave the suffering of this world and rest in the peace and pleasure of our Heavenly Father. Celebrate her life and the wonderful reward she has now received. You and your family are in my prayers.

    I am terribly sorry for your loss. I have lost grandparents both quickly and slowly, and quickly is the best way for them and everyone else. I will keep your family in my prayers. Just remember she is in a MUCH better place. Try to smile at the memories you have with her. Keep the faith, Kat

    I’m so sorry. I prayed for your family as soon as I saw your post. My husband’s grandmother died suddenly last week as well. Watching his family go through the grieving process (and grieving with them) has been so hard, so i understand a little of what you’re going through. I’m sure the next few days will be hard and I’ll be thinking of you/praying for you as you get through them. Just keep reminding yourself what you wrote about God having a perfect plan.

    I know it sounds trite (and repetitive), but I’m so very sorry to hear about your grandmother. My grandmother died in 2006 and it shook me to the core so while I can’t say how you’re feeling, I’m sure I felt some of it back then. I know I’m not too close, but if I can do anything to help ease the pain, please let me know. I’m sending hugs to you and your family <3
