Unexpected Changes

My grandmother passed away unexpectedly today.  Well, technically yesterday.  It was peaceful we think.  She was out on her porch reading the newspaper and her mail enjoying the sunshine and probably just passed very quickly.  She was still in her chair and her feet were up on the little cement wall in front of her door.  She just looked like she fell asleep and didn’t wake up again.  We should all be so lucky to go that way.  She was amazing!  She was truly a saint in every sense of the word.  She was kind to everyone and loved everyone.  I’ll miss her so very much.  I’m still kind of in shock.  I guess it will all sink in as time goes along.  I don’t actually know what to do now.  It’s hard because there was so much I wanted to do with her still.  Things I should have told her or done with her.  Now I can’t.  I don’t regret the time I had with her, I just wish I had more.  I wasn’t done having her with me yet.  I am so happy for her though.  She gets to be with her parents again and my Papa (her husband) who she has been without for 10 years this summer.  Also, now she can do the work that she wanted so badly to do, but she was inhibited by her physical body.  She’s free of all that now.  I love you grandma.  I’ll miss you so much, but I’ll always have you in my heart.
