Can stop thinking of you.

Almost 10 years ago I lost my grandmother. A few years after that my grandfather passed. I still hear myself talking to them as if they could hear me. I was only 25 when my grandmother passed. Now I am thirty-two, married with two children. I wish she was here. She was my strength, my encouragement and the one person who I knew really loved me with everything she had. My grandfather was the best man I will ever know. A true gentleman, respectful and loving of my grandmother. I always knew he carried a lot on his shoulders when it came to his family. Now I find myself wishing and hoping that more and more that they were here. When they passed I think I was in shock, not knowing who to turn to, who to trust and where in the world I would go from there. I know they are not coming back but I need to know how to handle this. My husband who still has his grandparents does not understand how I feel so therefore talking to him is always a quick, oh I am sorry. My mom never wants to talk about them because she always gets to upset, and my sisters and brothers, we'll I think if they knew I still cried like this all the time, they may find it a bit strange. I seem to find myself remembering a distinct smell from their house, or a phrase they used to say and remembering the best childhood memories I had were with them, I break down into tears. It does not matter where I am, work, home school, I just cry. Are their any suggestions?
