My Grandma L passed away on Friday. She was a fighter her whole life, struggling with many diseases and illnesses but smiled through them all. She was loved by her 7 kids, 21 grandkids and 5 great grandkids, with #6 on his or her way.
She died on her 82nd birthday. She spent half of it here with her children and half of it with my Grandfather, the love of her life, who died 2 years ago.
A devout Catholic, she is now with God, where she always wanted to be. We all know she is happy but that doesn't mean her absence is any less painful.
Tomorrow my family gathers to say goodbye. It kills me that I can't physically be there, but I will be with them him thoughts and prayers.
We'll all miss you Gram.
