Thank you everyone here who has been giving me support. I only joined this website recently and I wish I had known about this site sooner. It is with a heavy heart that I inform you all that my beloved grandmother has passed away this morning. She went in her sleep, surrounded by the ones who loved her most.
We have been making all the necessary arrangements and dealing with relatives who should just stay away until all things are handled. I will probably still be posting here because according to the Hospice Social Worker who was handling my grandma's case says will help my grieving and healing process. As some of you know, I was the primary care giver for my grandmother until a little over a month ago when my grandmother went on hospice and we finally were able to have health care aids. These two women were by far the greatest people who were taking care of my grandmother and in the short time I knew them, they will forever impact my life. Things are going to be hard as I still have 2 weeks of school left with finals, but I will manage to finish them and I will do it because that is and was what my grandma wanted, me to finish school.
My healing process will be slow and I will have my good days and bad and I really thank you all for whatever support and words of comfort you will share.
I loved my grandma very much as she was my main caretaker when I was growing up. I will have very fond memories to keep with me always and I hope that I will be able to share what I learned from her to help anybody else.
My aunt hasn't spoken to any of us except for the aunt that I live with telling her that she wants to meet with her alone and talk and that she wants my grandparents marriage certificate. (She's not getting it because we know it would fall into the wrong hands and that atleast if I have it, we know it will be kept because of the meaning it has.) (My grandparents were married for 49 years when my grandfather passed away and my grandparents really loved eachother and I just worry that it will end up going into the trash one day)
The whole family has pretty much shunned us yet they want things that belonged to my grandmother. It makes absolutely no sense to me.
Best wishes in your future.
Do keep in touch.
I am so sorry for your loss. You will get through it and you are not alone. Study hard as you know that is what your grandma would want for you to build a life for yourself.
