The night my grandma passed away
(Pueblo, Colorado, U.S.)
It all started May 20, 2006 between 9:00 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.. We were all sitting in my Grandma's living room watching my little cousin's recital she had done earlier that day. I got up and went and sat next to my Grandma.
Everything seemed alright, so I turned my head to finish watching the recital. After I turned around I heard my Uncle Frank saying "Mom" in a worried voice. So I turned and looked at my Grandma and seen my Uncle Frank shaking her hand. Then I thought "This isn't good". So I kept looking at my Grandma and thought "What's going on".
Then my Grandma looked at my Uncle Frank then me and took one last breath and moved her lips saying "good-bye". After that I heard my mom burst out into tears saying "No grandma no!". Then I felt my throat swelling up and my eyes started getting watery. After that happened I found myself crying just as hard as my mom, possibly harder.
So then everybody started crying and called people who weren't there saying "Moms gone" or "Grandma's gone,she passed". I never thought I would see my grandma pass away, just because I didn't want to see her go; she left on that night.
And ever since then I can't even go to the church without remembering that night, I can't even go in my grandma's living room without seeing her there taking one last breath. This still haunts me even though it happened two years ago, I still see her presence whenever I go to her house,I don't know why this had to happen to me?
