Death of Grandparent...

Welcome to the "Lost Grandparent" page. Grandparents hold a special place in our hearts, and when we lose them, we lose a special kind of love. When your Grandma or Grandpa dies, you might feel guilty if you have been "neglecting" them, not spending much time with them. You are sure to miss their unique wisdom and common-sense advice born from decades of living. Losing your grandparent may also force you to confront your own mortality (feeling a little older and vulnerable yourself?)

May you begin to heal by telling others about the loss of your own special Grandparent, and also find some comfort in similar stories posted by other bereaved "grandchildren".

Ready to tell your story?  It's very easy, and there is no cost. Just click in and start writing below:

We also ask that you please do NOT type in ALL CAPS; but we would appreciate if you did capitalize "I". Thanks so much for following these simple guidelines.)
