I rarely write personal blogs..but I need to do this today...or rather I feel I must get it out somehow.
Today is the service for my beloved Grammy...who passed away last Thursday suddenly at the age of 96. I say suddenly because until this month, shew was a healthy vibrant, independent woman who even at 96 still lives in her own apartment.
I know it's her time.. and I know she deserves peace and she has been ready to go now for a while...And I try not to be selfish in wanting her near, but it's really really difficult.
I wanna say to her thank you Grammy, for giving me all the love I could ever have needed. For teaching me so many things...most of which is being strong. Thank you for giving me security..and making me feel safe. Thank you for always being there and not judging me. Thanks you for giving me a place of peace when all around me was crumbling down. Thank you for making me feel special and spending so much time with me.
I will always treasure every memory of you precious in my heart always,last night I was crying for you and I had a blanket you made me. One that you even showed me how you made. and I could feel you comforting me like you did when I was little and sick.
You gave me the most wonderful Grammy anyone could ask for or ever want. My Smile is the same as yours. This is proof to me that without you, I would not be the person I am now.
I love you Grammy. May you rest in peace and all the troubles and struggles in this life leave you and finally give you pure happiness. May God reward you for all and forgive you for what things your regret.
Until we meet again...
with all my love.
Your grandaughter, Karen Lee
