My Grandma passed away today

December 23rd, 2009

My Grandmother passed away this evening 
And I've lost one of the most important people in my life. 
And I feel broken. 
Maybe part of me thought she wouldn't die. 
Couldn't die. 
She was always a little more than human to me. 
But I suppose she was mortal, like the rest of us, after all. 
And maybe that's a beautiful thing. 
She was a soft woman, to the very end. 
With the best kind of affections. 
Her strength and her compassion were so connected, there was no separating them. 
She loved her family with all her heart. 
And she made us feel special. 
She made me feel special. 
I went to her room every day night when she was in Pollachi. 
But now she has a new home, in a place I can't visit. 
Someday, though, I'll find my way there. 
Because no matter how much I love life, I won't live forever. 
And maybe that's a beautiful thing, too.

My hearty condolences in your bereavement. I understand how important to you your grandmother was. You should know, one cannot live for ever. Everyone of us should leave this world. Any amount of words will not soothe you. God give you strength to bear the irreparable loss. Yours in grief.
