I'm thinking of you..

Today is my Grandma's birthday, she would have been 89, all day I have thought of how she might be celebrating.
Dancing with my Grandpa, eating chocolate cake or date squares, did she know I was thinking of her all day. Would she be disappointed in me for crying because I missed her today just like the day I got the call saying she had passed away. I know she never wanted me to mourn her passing but celebrate her life.
So today as she would of celebrated 89 wonderful years I think of the times we shared, the laughs, the tender moments, our secrets and private jokes. I thought of what a life she led, one of joy, hardships and how she lived every minute to the fullest. I was so proud to be her Granddaughter.
Your love lives on in my heart, so today I wish you a happy birthday and send you all my love.

Kerri-
Oh sweet lady, I wish we could know if our loved ones know how much we love and miss them. I think by holding on to the wonderful memories and celebrating them, they know.

I think your sweet grandmother would understand your grief, but wouldn't want you to dwell on it.

She sounds like an amazing woman.

Sending you big hugs!!!

I am going home the day after Christmas to see my Grandmother for what I believe will be the last time. It is so hard. She has always been a pillar in my life, I don't know how things will stand without her.

My heart goes out to you today.
