View Full Version : My grandmother passed away last night
04-17-2007, 10:43 AM
Hi folks, I'm quite sad today. My mom called me last night at 9:45 to tell me that my grandmother was found in her apartment, not breathing. She passed away some time between 4pm and 9pm yesterday.
My mom had been trying to call her, and she wasn't answering the phone, so she called the security guard who called the police and the paramedics. My mom usually called my grandmother at 4pm and 9pm to check up on her, and she did speak with her at 4pm. Little did she know that would be the last time she'd ever speak with her mom.
My DS4 and I last spoke with her on Sunday.
I haven't told my little boy yet. He's still reeling from having lost his doggie back in December. I'm not sure how I'm going to get through telling him yet more sad news.:(

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Sending prayers and :pixie: to help you all heal.
There are some great books out there that help dying and grieving for little ones. Sometimes it helps to explain things through a story. I know there are some great ones like the story of the butterfly that death is just a transition. I know it hurts that much more when our little ones are in pain. :angel: Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for your kind thoughts, everyone. The funeral was graveside, and quite simple, but comforting. We are Jewish, and would normally sit shiva, but my mom didn't want to do that. We simply got together with some relatives afterward and she took us all out to lunch so we could spend time together. Some of those folks I haven't seen in 10 years, since my grandfather's funeral.
My DS took it pretty well. He didn't bring it up for a few days, then he decided to start telling everyone that his "Nanny went to heaven and she's with our dog, Sneakers."
I'm still getting used to the fact that she won't be calling us anymore. But, life has to get back to normal now:(
