lost my grandmother on my 20th birthday

by Monica

Well this is really hard for me to do but here goes. My grandmother was and still is my inspiration to live. She pushed me forward to be the best I could be and i love her so much. June 6th (the day before my birthday) i left work and decided to go see my grandmother who was living at my uncle's house. She was telling me how she knit me a sweater and it will be finished tomorrow night as soon as I got home from work and it will be at my house. I was so excited. I got out of work the next day June 7th (my birthday) my dad brought a cake and it was all great. I asked him where the sweater was from my grandma and little did i know that he lied and said that she wasn't finished. June 8th (day after my birthday) i woke up to go to work at 6 am and my dad was sitting downstairs and he told me that my grandmother passed away on June 7th. I was literally at a loss of words I couldn't do anything but cry. That single moment was probably the worst moment of my life. I spent so much time with my grandma but now she is gone. It has been a little over 5 months and I still can't get her out of my head and I cry myself to sleep every night.

lost my grandmother on my 20th birthday

Monica I am sorry for your loss of your grandmother on your 20th Birthday. How sad to have this experience so close to your birthday and young life. We wish we could have our loved ones with us forever. But sadly our loved ones are dying now faster than we can cope with. So many families broken by Death. Yet we know this is going to happen we are never prepared for how this loss will make us feel. The lonliness is terrible. Not sharing any more memories will hurt you for a long time. I hope that you have a good supportive family and friends who will allow you the time and space to express yourself and what this loss means to you.
