I didn’t announce my week-long trip to California this time, because my beloved grandmother passed away suddenly and I needed to spend time with my family. I couldn’t believe my ears when my mom called me to tell me the devastating news. My dad had just passed away less than 2 years ago, and this time his mother… I was not planning to have to say good-bye to her so soon. She was the most beautiful woman inside and out, so gracious, caring and loving to everyone around her. I’ll truly miss her southern-style cooking, her baking, the stories she told of her childhood, and just being in her presence. She taught me the importance of family and of God, and to keep them close to your heart. Grandma, you will be truly missed by many. I love you and miss you so much. May you rest in peace and watch over us from Heaven with Dad.

Sorry to hear about your grandmother and father, I lost both myself and I was sad I didn't get to say goodbye. The good memories you have of them are a gift they left behind. Take care.

Much Love,

Hey love, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. However, she's in such a beautiful and peaceful place up there. My heart was broken when my grandma passed away too and the fact that I was too busy to go and visit her and I still regret it. Hope you feel better soon and stay strong my girl 🙂
