One Year, Two Grandmas

You may remember back in August Hal lost his grandma. She was such a sweet woman and cared so much about all of her grandkids. I think the legacy she left was so amazing. She had something like 99 great grandkids. Every Christmas she hung tiny little stockings in her big front window for all of her kids and grandkids, over the years it just kept growing and growing.
                          
Last night I found out that my grandmother passed away. It was definitely time, she was 94 and not in good health anymore. My sweet sassy hunched over grandma. She's been hunched over for as long as I can remember her.
                           
My grandmother has been alone for so long. She divorced when my mom was 8 years old and she never remarried. She outlived my mother by almost 8 years. My aunt has spent so long helping to watch over and take care of my grandmother. It feels comforting to me to know that my aunt took such good care of her, that she moved from one daughter's care; to be greeted by another daughter on the other side.

I'm sorry for you and your family's loss! She lived a very long life, I'm glad you feel peace in her passing, but losing someone is never easy.
