A Part of Me Gone
It has been six years since God called my grandmother home. She lost her battle with Dementia on January 17, 2008. I only got to experience 17 years of life with her. And I surely did enjoy the time we shared together. My grandmother was an amazing woman of God and a major influence in my life. She always made sure I kept my mind stayed on God, she always motivated me to do the right things, she always encouraged me and lifted me up when I was in despair, she always tried her hardest to hold the family together, and she taught me how to love. But when she died, it felt like a part of me had died. It was like my world was turned upside down. Even though it has been six years, there are times when I think of her and I just cry. I miss and love her very much.
