My grandmother passed away last night and I am sad.

Sad that I cant be with my family and at her funeral in Israel today.

Sad that my grandfather is suffering such anguish because today he lost the love of his life.

Sad that her 7 children, their spouses, 21 grandchildren, her 9 siblings, their spouses and their children- will no longer have the privilege to be around her.

Sad that my children will never have known her- although I know that they are now being watched by her.

Sad that the world has truly lost one of its angels today.

    I’m so sorry for your loss; I know it must be hard not to be there but I am sure they all know your heart is with them.
    My children will only have one grandparent on my mother’s side so that makes me sad because I didn’t have much involvement with grandparents growing up so I really wanted that for them.

    Your gtandmother sounds like a wonderful person. I am sure that she knew how much you loved her.

    Sending love and hugs.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I know your pain all too well. My Grandma also died of pancreatic cancer way too young and we still miss her all the time. She was also vibrant and full of life and I cried everytime I read about your Grandma on your blog. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Big prayers and hugs for those she left behind.

    Oh so sorry… when my grandfather passed away in January, I totally felt the same way- I still miss him in my life.

    so sorry for your loss. She seems like such a special woman just from the few post you wrote about her. It sounds like you had a very special relationship with her. I was very close to one of my grandmothers who also passed a few years ago. I know how though it can be. She will definitely be watching over you and your babies from above.
