this moment to be free

I wonder if she knew what was happening, though no one told her. I wonder if she saw it coming. I wonder if she said and did everything she had hoped to. I wonder what she saw and was thinking at the end. I wonder if she was confused, hurting, at peace, scared, or relieved. I wonder if it was a combination thereof.

I wonder if death came as a welcome visitor to her.

I like to think it did.

Sorry for your loss, Jen. It was good that you saw your grannie when you did - I'm always glad I saw mine.

I am sorry for your loss, Jennifer. I understand how you feel. It is good that you saw her. I think she'll know that she had all of you to look forward to and to see your faces before she went, would keep her strong for her journey. I'm sure she's in a blessed place.

God Keep You.

It's always sad to lose a loved one.

Memory is a wonderful thing--I lost both my grandparents on my father's side, but they left me a lifetime's worth of wonderful memories that I cherish. I suspect you have a treasure trove as well.

Your grandmothers pain is over so that yours can begin to heal. Be well, and honor her by thinking back and smiling often.

I keep coming back to this post and wanting to comment, yet, not knowing what to say.

I hope today is better than yesterday and that you're doing well. Sorry for your loss and doubly sorry it take me so long to say that.

Take care of yourself.
