Hello everyone. I just joined legacy.com & this group "Loss of Loved Ones". I joined because I just lost my grandmother last Thursday. She was 102 & lived a long, productive life & she is in Heaven today(because she was a believer in Jesus Christ) with my grandfather(d. 2005), but I wish that she would've lived forever, even though I know in reality no one lives forever. Right now I feel so sad, depressed, and hopelessness :( As I think about my future, I just keep thinking: what do I have to look forward to anymore in life other than just more family members dying?? :( I miss the good ol' days when they were alive & we would spend the holidays together & now they're gone. I know I'll see them in Heaven again someday but in the meantime I miss them both very much. :(
to jennifer lilttlechild, hope you can see my comment. I know exactly how you feel. I have my husband, and I am very far away from the family left. They are all in South Africa. When it was the day of the service for my mom, I wanted to run after the coffin, but couldn't. People can't or won't extend themselves to care - I don't know which one is closer to the truth. Keep on being yourself, just take care of you. Do what your Aunty would wanted you to do to take care of you.

At the age of 85 my mom was in amazing health, and then one day she just went to bed and was too tired to get up. After 2 weeks in the hospital they finally diagnosed her with Terminal Leukemia. She was sent home to live the time remaining with her family. Mom was a fighter and amazed her Dr when she passed the projected time of her passing. Somehow her body had put itself into remission and she could possibly have up to 6 more months to live. Unfortunately, she injured her foot and was given pain medication that made her nauceous and she couldn't continue to eat the high fiber diet. She was out of remission just as soon as it started. She lived her final days at Dove House and with her family surrounding her she passed on.
I have had 3 back surgeries in the past 4 years and she was the one who drove me to Dr appt's and stayed with me all night. She was my strength to make it through this final and worse operation.
She had 3 children and 4 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren, all who she was active in their care. She went to sports and watched the little one's play.
We are estranged from our father. Without my mom I feel so lost and am not sure how much longer I can act like I am so strong and dealing with her loss. I can't stop crying when I am alone and wonder why she had to leave and not someone who didn't deserve life. I am so doubting my religion and am weighing all options. How am I supposed to make it through the next year of agonizing physical therapy without her by my side? She so wanted to live, she was so worried about us on her death bed instead of her shortened life. She was such a beautiful person inside and out.
I really don't think that anything that someone say's will ever matter in helping me to grieve but just having this oppurtunity to write my feelings out and not hold them inside helps for this moment.
