I keep trying to write this post, but I just can’t seem to do it. I just can’t seem to put into words how much I am going to miss my Grandmother Kathleen. I’m having trouble sorting through the memories . . .
I think it is going to take some time to really come to terms with this loss. But I know I will miss her for the rest of my life. I can still hear her voice telling me, as she did every time I saw her, every time I spoke to her on the phone, “You are so special and so dear to me.” It may sound silly, but I don’t think anyone else in my life has ever said that to me so plainly and so often. It made me smile every time. And every time I told her how special she was as well. And she really, really was.
