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.
