My great grandmother passed away from Cancer on Thursday. And it wasn't until about an hour ago it finally hit me. I'm one of those people that so I don't miss people too much, I push memories out until I see photos, hence why I take so many. Today, my Dad made a slideshow for her funeral, and we watched it...I remembered everything. The times I spent with her, how happy and joyful she was, and how she smiled in every picture. I wish I'd appreciated her more, and her company. She was so beautiful, even in her older age. She was always happy, even after her husband killed himself, and still took care of herself and others around her. Last time I visited her, I was 13/14. We got there at about 930pm. It was me, my mother, father, uncle, and grandpa, and we all sat around and watched "Young Frankenstein", the first time I'd ever watched it. It has been one of my favorite movies since then. I'm thankful for the memories, but I wish I could've said goodbye...I have realized, we do not have as much time on this Earth as we think. Let's all be happy for what we have, instead of beging for what we don't, and cherish every memory.

StarsCASSiOPEiA-Sorry you're having a nasty time, hopefully a big mug of tea will chase the doldrums away.

Loli:
I am sorry about your loss, and I send my best wishes to your family. I hope this time for you is filled with more happy memories and your family is doing well.

You guys are too nice to me. <3

But I definitely think Loli is the one who really needs the hugs now. (hug) I too lost my grandmother to cancer, and like you, it didn't hit me until later either. Just remember the times you did smile with her, and know that she's always going to be looking out for you from above. : )

Sad story time it is.

My grandmother battled cancer for years, throughout my teen years it was just how things where and she always came out of things after occasional hospital stays. Sometimes she'd be fine, other times more sick. But she was always just in and out of treatment and it became just a normal thing.

She died in the winter, during the last visit my mother, father, and I had with them up in northern Michigan. My dad got a call on his phone that I answered, it was my sister April (whom i am since estranged with) that told me in a shaky voice to get our dad on the phone. That was the night my grandmother died.

There isn't a lot I remember about the whole time, it was all a sort of blur to me. Most people say they remember everything about the day someone they love dies, the kind of weather it was, the exact hour, the day, the year...I don't honestly remember that. I remember it was night time and winter, but I can't even tell you the year she died. It was at a point in my life that everything is a big mashing of events that flow together and I wish I had more to say on it.

What I do remember is visiting her some months before she died at a time she was in the hospital. I remember hating the smell and everything looked bright and bleak.

If I lost someone else I love to cancer I don't know what I'd do with myself. Sometimes when people close to me are ill I withdraw into myself like a shell and just cry for them. I tell myself that everyone will be okay because my Grandmother went so long with being okay. It's the sort of thing I handle very poorly and without much grace. Perhaps it's more of a trauma then I am inclined to admit.

Alas, this is too much sadness for this thread and so I post a picture of a kitten:

Sounds awesome! I love snorkeling but would never scuba dive. It would be too claustrophobic for me.

If my Granma goes first I don't know how he will survive.
Ah, old people. That will be all of us some day.

Speaking of fishies - this made me LOL:

I feel much better. I still will miss her, but she's probably better off where she is than I!

Up side of things, boyfriend actually wants to cosplay Shinging Armor when I told him I was going to cosplay Cadence. Yay! : )

I had a great weekend despite having to work Friday, Saturday and today. I slept over Gf's house Friday and Saturday.

My trip to AAC has been changed to weekend in Gf's parent's condo. At least it's a weekend away. and it's free.

Here is a video of me and my buddy playing (and rage quitting) Toejam and Earl.

It has four parts.
