Leanne I am sorry for your loss of your grandmother. It is normal to want to hold onto our loved ones no matter how old they are. We look for "If Only" as our way of coping with our loss. This is part of grief and will eventually go.
Letting go is one of the hardest things to do in life. I struggled with this for over 40yrs. I then took myself off to counselling in my 40's and resolved my losses. I then found it easier to cope with letting go. For some people it is not easy to let go. Holding on to our loved ones can be so comforting, but it is when we lose them that it becomes such a struggle and so much pain to deal with. If you struggle here perhaps a few sessions with a grief counsellor may be all that is needed to release you from this blockage. Take one day at a time and you will get through each day better.
