    My grandma died

    A few weeks ago my grandma had to go to the hospital because of the flu. The day before she was to be released they tried a new medication on her to help her enfasema and they over medicated her and she died 2 days later on Easter. My grandma was my favorite family member and I don't know what I'd do without her. I miss her so much. She was 80 years old and everyone loved her. I was her favorite of her 13 grand children and 14 great grandchildren. About 60 people showed up at her funeral. I was one of the 8 pole bearers. I can't belive my grandma was gone. The day before she went into the hospital I watched my new Pokemon movie with her. She loved the movie. At least we got to do something fun together before she died. I love you grandma.

    I am so sorry to hear that.

    My grandma passed away almost 4 years ago now, and though I am able to deal with it, it doesn't make it any easier. She was sick with the flu, which turned into bronchitis, but no-one expected her to die from it. She had clogged arteries from smoking, which was a contributing factor, but they think it was actually a heart attack that killed her. I still have days/nights where I cry my eyes out.

    Last year on the anniversary of her death, i went to the cemetary with my now ex boyfriend. He couldn't really do anything but hold me while I cried and cried. And I was bawling! I was shaking from the sobs. I looked up at him to see that he had tears in his eyes too, though he had never met her, just from seeing my pain...

    I know exactly what you're going through, but like you said, at least you got to do something fun together before she died. I hadn't seen my grandma for about 2 weeks when she died.

    Feel free to PM me if you like. I've been through it, if you want someone to talk to. Hang in there

    MS, You poor baby you. How sad. Just remember how much she loves you and you will see her again someday. Talk to her when you are lonely or sad, she is listening and smiling down on you....every minute of everyday.
    Don't dwell on what went wrong, Instead focus on who to punch first

    My condolences. My grandma passed away when I was about 16. The pain of loss is a difficult one to overcome (some never do), but remember that even though her vessel (physical self) has deceased, she'll live forever in memories and pictures. Again, I'm really sorry about your loss.

    PS, the old Pokemon movie was awesome.
    "...I mean, it's real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Of course, don't ever tell anybody that they're not free, 'cause then they're gonna get real busy killin' and maimin' to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they're gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em."

    Sorry to hear about your grandmom, Mew. I too just recently lost my grandmother - I went home to say my last good bye and it was very emotional. Understand that death is inevitable and passing on is none other than renewal of the spirit. They may not be here with us physically but they are a part of us spiritually - they live in us through our fond memories of them. I know our grandmothers are in a much happier place.

    For you - it's my favorite pokemon song - The Time Has Come (Picachu's Goodbye).

    I close my eyes
    And I can see
    The day we met
    Just one moment and I knew
    You're my best friend
    'Do anything
    For you

    We've gone so far
    And done so much
    And I feel
    Like we've always been together
    Right by my side
    Through thick and thin
    You're the part of my life
    I'll always remember

    The time has come
    It's for the best I know it
    Who could've guessed that you and I...
    somehow, someday
    We'd have to say goodbye.

    You've helped me find
    The strengh inside
    And the courage
    To make all my dreams come true
    How will I find
    Another friend
    Like you

    Two of a kind
    That's what we are
    And it seemed
    Like we were always winning
    But as our team
    Is torn apart
    I wish we could go
    Back to the beginning

    The time has come
    It's for the best I know it
    Who could've guessed that you and I...
    Somehow, some way
    We'd have to say goodbye.

    Somehow today...
    ...we have to say goodbye.

    I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother. The special bond you had with her will live on forever in you. Remember the good times you shared and know that she will always love you. Someday if you have children and grandchildren of your own, you can tell them stories about her life and the wonderful person that she was.

    Here is one of my favorite poems that always makes e feel a little better when I am missing someone:



    I Did Not Die
    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow;
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
    I am the gentle Autumn’s rain.

    When you awaken in the morning’s hush.
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft star that shines at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry.
    I am not there;
    I did not die.


    ((Hugs))

    Carly, don't be sad
    Life is crazy, life is mad
    Don't be afraid
    Carly, don't be sad
    That's your destiny, the only chance
    Take it, take it in your hands



    Well behaved women rarely make history.

    EDIT: The name of the poem is Indian Prayer
    OMG! That was the poem that my grandma had wanted to be said at her funeral. My family is Native American. My grandma was 1/2 Cherokee and my grandpa was 1/4 Cherokee and 1/4 Black Foot. My dad is 1/8 Cherokee so that makes me 1/4 Cherokee and 1/16 Black Foot.

    As for the Pokemon song "The Time Has Come (Pikachu's Goodbye)" I have the CD version, the TV version and I made a music video for it. I think I acedently deleted my only copy of the video though, but I can make it again.
