My grandmom passed away 2 weeks ago...
by Joseph Merrick
She was 95. I lived with her the 8-10 years of my life. Until last week, I had never seen photos of my grandmother when she was younger. She was cute kid and she seemed happy playing with her sisters and parents. As I grieve for the grandmother I know, I now weep for the grandmother I never knew. A baby. A child, A teenager. She was a wonderful sister and a compassionate aunt. She cared for many and would do her best to make others happy.
My heart aches knowing she sacrificed her life to maintain a marriage that she should have never entered. My blood boils knowing that her daughters are incompetent people who slowly drained away her life and money. My mind knows I was a lazy and selfish grandson. For this mistake, I will never forgive or forget.
There is afterlife and my words and thoughts end with me. I will do my best to preserve your memory. I will cherish and protect the photos that you left me. I am sorry if I failed or disappointed you. Thanks you for your love.
