My granny, she had blue eyes:

She gave them to me:

She loved me completely:

And I miss her completely.

Be in peace, my granny.  You heart of our hearts.  Smoker of cigarettes, reader of the paper.  Nurse.  Fixer of eggs and cereal.

I will think of you every time I look in the mirror.  Until we walk together again, I will miss you.

The nurses said her last word was "Mom!"

DLJ. Died today, May 21, 2010.

Hugs, thoughts & prayers for your loss.

Kori said...

I don't have any words to comfort, because they all just sound so much like bullshit. I send you hugs and lots of love, though.

Ms. Moon said...

Precious. When did she die, honey?

SJ said...

Hey Ms Moon -she died tonight. I amended to add that.

oh, SJ.

I don't know if it's appropriate to comment.
But I've "seen" you in so many of the places i go.

and something told me to finally click here.
so perhaps, I am meant to send you love for this loss.

prayers, and cyber hugs,
and because your voice is always so beautiful,
I am certain your grandma will be in your heart always, as you were , in hers.

SJ said...

Deb --oh, thank you so much. I'm so glad you decided to comment today! It means alot.

All of you -thank you.
