you ain't never had a friend like me

As the week draws to an end, and what a long week it has been- I want to touch on the death of a beloved friend and family member of mine, my grandmother. I know a big celebrity has been in the news, who also passed away, and although he will always be a favorite of mine, my sorrow and grief this week has been for my family members, my father, my aunt and uncle, all of my relatives- who lost a remarkable woman. My MaMa had been battling lung cancer for the past several years and her journey came to an end, thankfully in her own bed, this past weekend.

A beautiful woman, who always had a smile on a face, a piece candy to share and a hug I will most definitely miss. I love you and I miss you so much already.

Both of my mother's parents have passed away as well but I was not nearly as close with them as I was with this grandparent. Honestly, this might be the first person I've known who has passed away for whom I will seriously grieve. I never knew it would be so hard- not that anyone does, or would know. Grieving is such a unique process for every person that nothing could truly prepare you for the feelings.

 Tears stream down my face as I write this goodbye, filled with love, sadness, and the understanding that she is now in a better place. My memories of you will last forever and I can only hope to pass on the goodness you shared with me. Thank you.
