  • NOT a Merry Christmas for me

    My grandma flew out to AZ to see a mayo specialist the beginning of the month. She was admitted to the hospital last sunday with flu symptoms. She decided she had enough on thursday and we called in Hospice. Her last wish was to get back home to our house. We made it with a couple of hours to spare. She passed away peacefully at 6:30 last night I guess she wanted to see Grandpa for Christmas Thanks to all the people at hospice so much, such a wonderful organization. There are some amazing people in this world. Hope everyone else had a great Christmas

          Iam soo sorry

          I have to tell you..

          About five years ago.. my granny passed

          I used to visited my granny in GA at least one of twice a year. Well the last year i visited her I noticed that things were not going well and her and my grandpa were not able to keep their house up. (don't ask it was bad) Anyways I always loved my granny and convinced her to come live with me. She did and for a few years I spoiled her(even thou sometimes she hated it because I was taking care of her) ( she was use to taking care of herself) It was hard some times but bottom line was I was there for her at the end. Really that is the best thing for me ... I know that she knew I really loved her and was trying to show her that...

          I think that yours knew that to....

              I'm sorry for your loss. I am happy, however, that your grandma got her one last wish, that is wonderful!! I have to say that I liked what you said about wanting to see your grandpa on Christmas!

              Though it was not a "Merry" Christmas, death is a part of life, and it sounds like it could not have gone any smoother and your grandmother's last wish was granted. She was blessed.

                I am so sorry for your loss. Grandparents are special people, and they will always live on in your heart. While you are feeling sorrow, she went to her eternal rest on a very special day. The Lord called her home to be a new angel. This has been a hard holiday filled with sorrow for many people on the board.

                    I am sorry for your loss as well

                    I believe there are no accidents when things like this happen. Christmas isn't as good a time as any to go to Heaven for those left behind, only for the one going. I have a poem to PM to you. It will make you cry, but it will also hopefully give you hope. God Bless

                          I too, am sorry for your loss. I can share that I too have had a 'different' feeling about Christmas due to my loss. In 1992, my grandfather... My grandparents were very very important to me... they had so much to do with who I am. I was especially close to them (more so than any other family member) My grandfather had always been a very independent, very kind, very strong man. He had a stroke in late nov. was in the hospital for a week then transfered to a nursing home. I was his 'special baby' and he had been refusing to eat for several days. Christmas eve I was asked to come and 'get him to eat something'. I sat with him.. he could not talk and he was shaking/trembling... I sat with him for some time, talking and did get him to eat a few spoonfuls of applesauce until I saw tears in his eyes. I stopped and calmly asked him... "you don't want to do this do you grandpa, do you" he stopped shaking, grabbed my hand calmly... I looked in his eyes, told him it was OK, he had taught me all my life about respecting others choices... I told him I would not let grandma be alone... he took a deep breath, relaxed and then began to shake/tremor again.
                          Our family left to go on with the family 'celebrations' and I went home.

                          I got the phone call Christmas morning, about 8 am. It was my father, he told me my grandfather passed away at 3 am. I have never forgotten how it affected my holidays but I can also share... although it hurts now, for me at least it has given me a greater depth of respect for what people mean to me and that old adage... never leave a loved one without telling them how much they mean to you. The pain will lessen but I hope you never loose the memories of how special people have been to you.
