Loss

I've often spoken of my dear grandparents and my unexplainable love for them. My grandmother passed away this morning, and I'm absolutely heartbroken.


I grew up living in the same neighborhood as them, and my childhood memories are filled with enough love to last lifetimes. My family is very small which undoubtedly makes us very close. 

I'll be taking a few days off to be with them--especially my dear grandfather who is now a widow after 65 years of unfaltering love.

If only we could all be so lucky, right?

My heart breaks for you. Losing someone you love is never easy. Your family was lucky to have so many wonderful years with with her. You are in my thoughts.

Chris, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my grandfather 5 years ago, and I still miss him every day. I pray that God gives you peace during this difficult transition in your life and the lives of your family and children.

My grandmother is my best friend, and I count my blessings everyday that she is still with me and that my daughter has a chance to know her and spend time with her everyday like I did as a girl.

God bless!

I am so sorry to hear this news! I am also very close to my Grandparents! My 93 year old (this friday she'll be 94!) Grandmother even lives with me. Both of my Grandfathers died 8 and 9 years ago and I so adored them! Thankfully both of my Grandmother's are still alive. The world is a sweeter place because of them. I'm so glad you got to know yours so well. You are so smart to take the time you need, with those you love! Again, so sorry to hear of your loss. I do not know how I will get through losing my Grandmothers.

Hugs,

I'm so very sorry to hear this. I lost my grandfather in August and it's still extremely hard for me. He was the only grandfather I ever had and the first death on either side of my family in 43 years. It's been rough to say the least. My heart is breaking to think of you going through that pain today. Prayers and warm hugs for you and your grandfather tonight.

I'm so sorry to hear this. My last grandparent, my grandmother died 9 years ago. we were very close too, and lived very close to each other with a small family as well. :-( It still is very hard! No matter how old someone is, it's still never long enough. :-(

Jennifer @lifecraftsandwhatever said...

I'm sorry. My husband's grandmother passed away on Friday. I'm praying for both of you.

Chris said...

It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a beloved grandparent. I miss my papa everyday, and dread the time when my other grandparents also depart this life. May you and your family feel some peace at this time.

Richella said...

Oh, Chris, I am so sorry for your loss. I've enjoyed reading about your grandparents over the years. Your love for them radiates right through your words--it's almost tangible, and it's so heartwarming. So I know your loss is huge, and my heart breaks for you. I'm so very sorry.

Thank you for sharing your love for your grandparents and now sharing with us your loss as well. I pray that we may all share some of your loss and therefore lighten your burden a bit. God bless you now as you minister to your grandfather. May you all find comfort together in celebrating your grandmother's great life even in the midst of the sadness her passing.

You are such a lovable woman. I imagine that one reason for that is because you were loved so well by your wonderful grandmother. We all now share a little tiny bit of her legacy. Thank you for letting us share.

Staci said...

Rita @ TesoroFino.com said...

Having lost my dad at 90 last summer, my wounds are still sore from the loss. As I read your post, I immediately thought how fortunate we both were to have such a loving bond to our family members. I feel so fortunate to be like you to love them so deeply. That's what makes their loss so difficult. I don't think everyone experiences such closeness with family members and we should be so grateful to have been given such loving family members. Treasure every moment with your grandpa and be kind to yourself as you mourn your grandmother's loss. xoxo

Oh Chris, I’m so sorry. My grandmother passed a few years ago, the funeral was very hard for me because I didn’t want to remember her that way but it gave me peace to think she was finally able to see my grandpa again. I hope you and your family are able to find peace in such a difficult time.

Cheryl G. said...

I'm so sorry about your grandmother. I had an amazing grandma that was a ball of sunshine. I want to be an amazing grandma myself (our first and only grandchild is 5 months old). I have a lot to learn but I sure do love that little bundle of joy! I hope I measure up.

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother! Praying for your family!

Amy said...

I am so sorry for your loss. I can see your face in your grandmother's. My grandma (who was my only stability growing up) passed away about 4 years ago. I still catch my breath every once in awhile when I think about her. There is just something about grandmas. The neatest thing for me (and the most complimentary) was at her funeral hearing people talk about her highschool days and days as a young mother. I thought I knew everything about her but I didn't. I found out a lot of the stuff I am naturally good at and love, she did too. I will always cherish the memory of my grandma.

Hugs, prayers, and thoughts to you and your family as you go through this time.

Heather said...

Chris,I'm so sorry that you and your family are experiencing the sadness of losing someone so dear to you. It's an awful feeling! I lost both of my grandmother's and I miss them so much. There is hope though! Revelation 21:3,4 "He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more".

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Never having my grandparents in the same country with me, I grew up not knowing what that relationship was like. My prayers are with you.

So sorry for your loss. Take this time to share with your family the memories.

Grandmothers are in a league of their own, and losing them is especially painful. Take the time you need to be with family...you'll be in my thoughts.

danahollis said...

Aww... I'm so sorry. :( I, too, am very close with my grandparents who are 87 and have also been together 65 years! They are a more special to me than words could ever express.

I know the day will come when I'll have to say goodbye and well... I just avoid thinking about it.

Hugs to you! May your memories be strong in your heart and carry you through... ♥

Erin @ Crafts and Sutch said...

Many thoughts and prayers for you and your family!

Loretta said...

Chris, our condolence.I know what the loss of a grandparent is, especially when you are close with them. I loss both of mine and my life as I knew it has never been the same! But, life goes on and they will forever remain in my heart. So will your grandmother! All the best to you and your family. Luv-Loretta

So very sorry for your loss! I have lost a grandparent before and it is SO hard! My grandmother lives less than a mile from us and I see her daily and she is VERY close with my daughter. It is hard for me to even think of her not being around. I hope you will find comfort in knowing she is in a better place and also in remembering all of the good memories you have of her.
God Bless you & your family.

I am so sorry you lost your dear grandmother. I was very close to my grandparents, especially my grandmas. All of them have been gone for 11 years now. I miss my grandmas alot. I love to think of them watching over me and my children now. I love how they live on in me when I say something they said or do something they taught me. We are very blessed in this day and age to have known our grandparents. Most of those in previous generations were not so lucky as people died so much younger. Take care:)

In these situations, there are no words that don't just come out sounding trite or just selfishly trying to make up for my own incompetence to comfort. But if I had those magic words that would embrace you in peace, comfort, and love and take away the ache in your heart, I would lavish them upon you now! Hugs friend.

I hope all will go well for you this week and your family can have strength through the funeral, especially for your grandpa and mom.

I am so sorry to read this. My grandmother was unlike any other & I can understand how hard this is. I would give anything just to watch her do something so simple as applying her makeup. The times we share may be limited, but they are the real treasures in life.

Let the memories keep you close.

My heart breaks for you. When you said you had an unexplainable love for your grandparents, I seriously thought you might be a long lost friend of mine! I was blessed to live with my grandparents from age 3 - 18. I lost the greatest man I've ever know almost 3 years ago and it's the hardest thing I've ever, ever been through. I'm sorry, this comment is not supposed to be about me. It's about you! And I want you to know that I'm praying for you, your grandfather and your entire family during this difficult time.

Oh Chris, I am thinking of you during this time! I lost my Grandma who I was very close to almost 2 years ago and she was the closest person to ever pass away from me. It was her wish that I deliver her eulogy at the funeral and I never thought I could do it but I did and it's one thing that really helped me to deal with her loss. I am praying for you and your family and so happy to hear that you have so many fond memories growing up with her.

Chris,
I am so sorry I missed this post. I am so sorry for your loss. Grandmothers are just absolute jewels on earth and there is no way to measure the value of their love.
I am praying for you and your family. Especially your grandfather.
xoxo
Traci
