    I’m sorry for your loss. What a beautiful post to commemorate how much she meant to you and your family. Made me think of my two Grandmas… I lost them both when I was a kid. Didn’t get nearly as much time with them as I would have liked. I’m thankful that my husband still has one of his Grandmas in his life, and we try to make time for her as much as possible even though she lives far away from us.

      It is wonderful that you spend time with your husbands grandma. It is so so important. Elderly people often feel so forgotten about. Enjoy that precious time with her. Sorry you lost your grandmas so early.

    What a beautiful letter – put in words a lot of what I’d have liked to write to my mum who I lost several years ago. The irrational feeling doesn’t really go away. Love and strength to you and your family.

    Sweet post. Grandmas are the best. I miss mine every day. It must have been emotional for you to write this letter, I know I would be crying all the time.

    Wow! Your letter really resonated with how I feel, though my grandmother has been gone for many years now. But I adopted my children late in life and I find I need her so much. I also wish she could have met each one of them. Anyway, I’m sorry she is not in your life anymore.

      Alexandra, it sounds like you had a wonderful relationship with your grandma as well.
      They definitely leave a hole when they are gone.

    My Mamaw was my Proverbs 31 role model. I think of all the wonderful things she did and set them as my standard. I look forward to seeing her again someday!!

    If you wrote out a list of all the ways your grandma blessed you, can you see the parallel in your life? Do you see areas of change? Have her memory live through you. Strive to be that continuation of love and good that she shared. You are in her lineage, therefore it is genetically in you.

    Your love is beautiful, Amy 💜

    Oh my word! You have no idea how much I needed this today. My own grandma died this summer (Nanny) and today would have been her 88th birthday. She was my best friend in the world and this has been one of the hardest seasons our family has faced. Thank you for sharing this beautiful tribute. Hoping you find more peace each day.

    A lovely post and a lovely Grandma. Sorry for your loss. My Nan left this world in February, I still sometimes forget she’s not here.
