We Love You Grandma!

5:57 PM

Yesterday morning I woke up at 6 from a dream where my mom had just told me my Grandma passed away. A few minutes later, I checked my phone and saw that I had a missed call from her at 4 in the morning. I texted my brother who lives with her and he said that he had called me accidentally in the night, but that Grandma had a rough night and that her time was short.

I went to work like normal, but was super distracted. I felt like I should go out and be with her, and I was all weepy anyway (so not good at controlling my tears!). I went home, got all ready to stay overnight with her, and went out to Sandy. After 2 hours sitting together with her and her sister, she passed away peacefully in her sleep. She was 87 and hadn't had much serious pain or complications with her cancer until the night before.

I am so glad for all the time I've gotten to spend with her, especially the last 5 years since I've been in Utah! She has always been as sharp as a tack and could rattle off memories and dates for hours, which I love. She experienced so much in her life and was always doing so many amazing things. I love my Grandma forever and am so glad that she got to celebrate her anniversary today with her husband who died the year before I was born.

She is amazing.
We love you Grandma!
