Not just another funeral
Sunday, June 23, 2019
Last week Monday night my world changed forever and now I have precious and sweet memories of my Nanny who passed away at 85 yes old. Next month she will be 86; would have been 86 years old. Her heart finally let go and Grandad came and helped her peacefully, I say this because her last words were his name and that she wanted to be with him and she passed away.
It was 5 years ago when we lost Grandad suddenly and now they are together.
Ruth was an amazing woman, a good Mother and an incredible Grandmother. The typical response is always I’m sorry for your loss well yesterday and older gentleman at the gym said to me, did she live a good life and I said yes; then he asked how old she was and I said 85; he asked was there much happiness and I said every good memory I have in my life has her in it; then he said then she will live on in you forever and you will speak about these memories and maybe even duplicate them with your Grandchildren. That is what is important after we aren’t here anymore-we all have an expiry date and it is up to us how we chose to live our life. That was all he said and I got teary eyed but it was such a different response to my grief and her passing that I truly cherished how he spoke to me about it.
I truly love both of them with all my heart and soul and I will be forever grateful for who I am because of both Nanny and Grandaddy.
