no words

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.

  1. Such a good picture of Grandmother- she looks so young in the one on the top, when was that taken? Will you bring home the old pics you have of hers from the 90th birthday? I never got to see them or what was done with them since I had to miss the party. xoxox

    • I was planning on bringing them back, though I never had the originals – Daddy scanned them and emailed them to me. I think we are going to do the same sort of display at the visitation. Have a safe flight, Boo. Looking forward to seeing you again!! xoxo
