Last night I got a message over Facebook that I wasn’t expecting to receive. My brother wanted to talk to my sister and I over Skype; because unfortunately our phones are down. I had a feeling that something was wrong, but you can never fully prepare yourself for this kind of news.
Last night my brother informed my sister and I that our grandmother wasn’t going to make it through the night. She had a massive heart attack yesterday morning, apparently she had an infection and I’m guessing that the infection was the cause of it. It seems so crazy because she had just had a quadruple bypass a couple of months ago.
The last time I was able to talk to her she sounded like her old self and I am so grateful that I have that memory of my last conversation with her sounding so good.
I’m going to miss her a lot, the photo above was taken a few years ago on my twentieth birthday. I’ve been thinking about my childhood a lot last night and today, she always spoiled me as a kid. I would go up to Colorado Springs to visit her for a week during spring break and summer break, we always had a lot of fun.
She was always there for the family at the drop of a hat whenever there was a problem or trouble of some kind, I’ll always be grateful towards her for that. She helped me through a lot of family issues and would be the one I could go to if I needed to.
Nanna I’m going to miss you a lot and I’ll always reminisce on the fun times that we had together. Thank you for making my childhood great.
I love you, I’ll miss you.
