She's gone and I miss her deeply.

by Karina Acosta

I don't know where to begin as to say how much pain I'm in. I'm 16 years old and grandma passed away June 8, 2014. She was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer about two years ago. This past year it spread entirely with a new tumor in her stomach. She was sent to the hospital then eventually put in an in home hospice. I spent everyday day with her until the moment she took her last breathe while I was holding her hand, after that moment my heart completely broke. She had always been a huge part of my life and loved me unconditionally. It's still hard to believe she's gone and I feel like a part of me is missing because I love her so much. I cry every day wishing she would be back to hold me and call me her princess again. I miss her more and more everyday.

For Karina
by: Debi

I am so sorry to hear about your terrible loss Karina, my heart goes out to you. This loss is still so raw and you are very young to have to cope with it. It's wonderful that you were able to be with your when she left this mortal world and that must have been so much of comfort to her to have her 'Princess' holding her hand. It is a privileged to be able to be there at the end and our last act on earth for those we love. Karina, I am much older than you (52) and I have lost my father, my beloved grandmother also and 2 months ago my wonderful mum very suddenly and now as an only child I have no one. The pain almost takes your breath away, so I do really understand. There is a Grandma sized hole in your heart that can never be filled. It takes time, a lot of time, before you are able to think about her without sadness but it does happen. Karina, don't stop talking to her, just as you did when she was on earth. Ask her to comfort you, just as she did when you could see her. Please believe me when I say that she will hear you and will comfort you. Write down your feelings, she will know them. The bond you have is very special and absence will never break it. Your Grandma has a wonderful granddaughter and Karina, she will never be far from your side I promise. Have faith in the love you have for each other. You will see her again when it is your time my love but until then know she is by your side, just behind the veil. My loving thoughts are with you.
