I just got a call from my mom. Grandma's body is finally shutting down. Her feet are purple.

The nurses don't think she'll make it throught th night.

I just hope she goes in her sleep. [Frown]

The body shutting down is a sign that she has made peace with her death. Being told that helped me, having gone through much the same thing earlier this year. Thinking of you and your family [Frown]

Jesus. I'm sorry, Darrell. I just lost my grandaunt, too -- one of the most intelligent and beautiful people I've ever known, without equal. I wish these things couldn't happen.

((Derrell))

My grandpa's funeral wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I didn't like sitting up front near the casket, but my grandma didn't lose it, so it kind of evened out.

Get yourself a bottle of water. I read that you can't cry while you're swallowing, so it's worth a try.

The eulogy was weird. I learned stuff about grandpa I hadn't known, but some of it sounded made up. "Personal relationship with God"? The man used to laugh at my mom for being religious. I think the preacher might have been stretching the truth a bit to make folks feel better. And that's the key point of the day. Making people feel better. Whatever gets said, let it slide.

You'll get through this. It'll suck, but you'll get through. ((Derrell)

She was a very independant woman. She was also as stubborn as a mule. When she first went into the nursing home, it was the prospect of going home that kept her going.

My grandmother was born in a town that no longer exists. It was the town of Ashhurst, Arizona. She raised her kids in the town of St. Johns, Arizona.


I'll add more later. I'm considering starting a new thread for the stories. It would be a thread where others could share stories about loved ones who've passed on.

Does that sound like a good idea to anyone else?
