Thank you, everybody. I guess what really put me over the edge is I received a Christmas card from her with money inside. I'm okay, and I'm trying to stay busy,

I clearly remember the day my sister called me to tell me my Grammy had passed. It shook me hard. She was the first family member to pass into the afterlife that I'd ever experienced at the time. I was a mess for a couple of days before I could again put everything into perspective.

The hurt in your heart will fade with time. Remember the good times with her and your love for her. That will keep your heart warm for the rest of your life. As long as she is always in your heart, she'll never be entirely gone. Part of her is in you.

Winding down, have a long day tomorrow and hoping I can stay busy. Shrek has a thing at the music store and he won't be done until I've been ready to go home for 2 hours...

I haven't been online for a few days and just saw this VB. I am sending you my sincerest condolences and warmest hugs through the Peace Arch.
