Default Laying My Grandmother To Rest Today

Today is the day we will lay my grandmother next to my grandfather for eternal rest. She was my go to person in life - my place of safe harbor when times got rough. She carried me home from the hospital when I was not. - not my mother. To say we were bonded in a special way is an understatement. She taught me about baseball, blackjack, how to stand for what’s right and to fulfill your obligations when you give your word. She traveled the world, worked 1 job for over 30 years, lived life fully and loved us all completely. My heart is broken but I have a lifetime of memories that help me smile. I am so thankful my kids got to know her and to see my son create that special bond that I had with her too.
Just wanted to ask my fellow members to send up a quick prayer for me & the family today.

Sorry for the long post. Been wanting to post this all week but could never get it completed. Thank you all. God Bless.

Grandmas are great. Mine passed last month. My grand father passed 42 years ago. The last month my grandma kept saying she wanted to go home and on her 62 wedding anniversary she rejoined the love of her life with our creator. God work is amazing.

Grandparents are often some of the greatest influences in some of our lives. Sounds like she was a great person and great influence on you, and help influence your life in a positive way.

Blake — I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. Mine had a DNR as well and we honored her wishes. Hurts like heck but she was clear with what she wanted.

Today was the most painful thing I have ever done in my life. But I promised her and my dad I would be there to see her journey thru to the very end. She was so much more to me than just a grandmother-she was my best friend. Sounds weird for a 42 yr old man to say but she was.

I will say special prayers for you and your family.
