My Gran Just Passed Away

Hi Old girl. 

You must have missed my Grandpop. 

That's probably why you crossed the over side

to see him.

I didn't get to see pop pass over, I missed the funeral...

I'm sorry. 

I was never good at those, I didn't want to see him

go.

There wasn't a lot of people that was good to me. 

I know I only knew you when I was a kid. 

But I'd like to say thank you to both you and pop

and also

I'm sorry.

Life just got so busy. 

I never had time to go up your way and say

hi. 

You were one of those grumpy Grans. 

You seemed stern and strict, but I kinda

loved that about you. 

You had this thing about you that made

me feel ...comfortable. 

I'm so sorry I didn't get to see you more. 

Time just went by so quickly. 

Our family has always been a little screwed up

we're kind of a distanced family. 

I never knew most of my grandparents or cousins

I don't even remember anyone much on my dads

side after mom got a divorce. 

But I remember distinctly going up to you

and pops place when I was a kid. 

You fed us, loved me.

My memories a little fuzzy but I knew it was a 

warm and loving environment with you guys. 

I guess it was one of my fondest memories 

of feeling safe and cared about.

I will be praying for you tonight

even though I'm not particularly religious. 

I hope you find pop over on the other side. 

I'm glad you passed in your sleep so it wasn't 

painful. 

I will always miss you. 

Some part of me will always think that you're still

there waiting for me to come home. 

I want you to know, if somehow this gets to you..

that I loved you and pop soo much. 

For being patient, and kind and scolding me

when I misbehaved. 

I'm most gracious of all that you're not going

to be sick anymore or sad. 

I'm glad that you don't have to be without pop

anymore. 

You were so grumpy, and cheeky and silly. 

I bet I will still see you at the corner of my

eyes sometimes giving me that disapproving 

look over your glasses. 

I love you so much. 

Have a nice rest Granny and please send pop my

love. 

 

Sincerely Rain.

Hi @RainyUmbrella

 

I'm sorry for your loss, I know it's really hard losing someone. How are you right now?

 

Expressing your emotions is great when grieving. Make sure you let your emotions out, don't bottle them!
