An amazing grandma

Me and my grandma towards the end :'(
So I lost my grandma 4 months and 4 days ago. It was sudden but at the same time it wasn't. This whole year she has been in and out of the hospital. She would have been 89 this November. She was the best grandma ever. I miss her soo much it kills me. I just wish I got to spend as much time with her as her other grandchildren did, but since I'm only 16 I didn't get to. :'( She didn't know about me until she came over and my dad said "here's your granddaughter" and from that moment she loved me and always did. (My dad didn't know about me till my real mom knocked on his door and said "here’s your daughter") Every chance I got I would go see her and spend time with her. She was a major part of my life and I will never forget her. I still remember the day she passed away. May 5, 2013. Friday she fell but didn't go down hard. She bent her knees and landed on her butt. Then Saturday, she was half out of it. It was like she had another mini stroke because she couldn't talk. It was so hard to see her like that and that's when it hit me that she wasn't going to make it much longer. Then Sunday, when I saw her I knew it was her last day because she was in a complete comatose state. It killed me to see her like that. Then at 7:06 while I was holding her hand she took her last breath. :'( But she’s in a much better place where she's not suffering or in pain. Rest in Peace Grandma. I love you and I miss you.
