Grandma Pearl i love you.

my grandma was very sick for about 3 years leading up to her death. she had a rare disorder that basically paralyzed her. she had a form of Parkinson not really known. some call it psp it also is called supra nuclear something or other. anyways for years leading up to her illness she would lose the use of her hand and speech. nobody really knew why. my mom got my grandma to see a doctor and it was too late. by then she was falling and couldn't take care of her self. at 67 my grandma was in a nursing home. she died at 70 in a hospital hospice care for long term illness. a week before she died a priest blessed her and during the prayers my grandpa told me in front of our family i was her favorite. and it was true my mom had said it before but never in front of my sister. i just wish i had her back. this disease ruined my childhood.
