My grandmother was one of a kind to all her knew her. Sadly on September 8, 2012 she was involved in a hit and run, the person just hit her and left her in the street, how could someone be so heartless??!! Thank God there were two bystanders who saw and called 911, they revived her and brought her back to us. For the last 4 Weeks and 5 days she slowly made her way back to us, on our last day together, which was 5 hours before she died, we laughed. My grandmother was a 77 year old strong, outgoing, still working, still partying and drinking Puerto Rican woman. She lived her life by her own rules, she loved life and feared death. She loved her family and would give her life for us. She gave and gave and gave and yesterday God called her name. She had been in rehab for 2 days and died of a pulmonary embolism on October 14, 2012. My grandma was never sick, my grandma didn't eat red meat, my grandma did everything possible to stay healthy and a senseless act complicated her health and ended taking her life.
My grandmother was my heart I see so much of her in me. I hate that we were rushing to leave that day, why didn't we stay longer?? Oh Lord if only we would have known that was the last time we would hear her voice we would have never left.
Grandma I wish we would have listened to you, I wish we would have demanded they send you to the hospital, but no we trusted that we knew best and that it was just "anxiety" and instead we tried to reassure you everything was fine, you told us you didn't want to die and we reassured you that you wouldn't, we failed you.
Why?? why didn't I spend more time with you believing there would always be tomorrow? Now there is no tomorrow and that's something I will have to live with for the rest of my life. I hope my dearest grandmother you know how much I adored you. I promise to live my life as you would have wanted, I vow to follow your footsteps and be the best person I can be. I will carry you with me every day and although you are no longer here in the human sense I know you will never leave my side. My heart is broken but as you thought me my faith is strong and I know I will see you on the other side one day. I will always love you and in me you will live forever.
