Today, my supervisor gave me the day off as we will be burying my grandmother.
My eyes well with tears as I think about it. This will be a hard day for me. I loved her so very much.
I remember my dad’s birthday party several weeks back. I was sitting by her and she leaned her head on my shoulder.
While we sat and talked with those around the table, I somehow knew I had better soak the affection up and I hugged her back for a long time.
I am glad I spent those precious few moments with her before she passed.
It is my intention to encourage everyone to express thier love while they have tho opportunity. I can think of times where I did not and I regret it.

My condolences. My girlfriend is a Pike too. (person, not fish.. or so I am under the impression ;)) Blessings.
Thank you friend! Perhaps they are related.
I am so sorry for your loss. And very wise advice to love those we have while we still have them! <3
Thank you Kristian. I appreciate your kindness. On a side note, I have used the phrase, ” that really burns my biscuits several times at work!”
Sending you even more love… 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖
Thanks, friend. I appreciate you!
Farewell Gramma Pike!
No! It’s not farewell!
It’s welcome to the a better, happier site!
I agree. Perhaps, farewell for now!
I’m so sorry for your loss. Losing my grandmother was so difficult. She was a constant source of love and normalcy. Blessings to you and your family.
Thank you Julie! Losing a loved one is difficult. May you be blessed as well!
Hard to say Goodbye…may she rest in peace.💗
Thank you, friend!
Sending lots of love 🖤🖤
Thank you friend!
You’re most welcome 🖤
Awww so sweet, but hard to go through.
When my great grandmother passed away last year at 100 years old, I realized that it is very important to show love to our family members while they are here. <3
That is a grand old age! I bet she had a lot of stories to tell! Thank you for stopping by, Lydia!
100?! I thought it was pretty impressive when my great-grandmother passed away a few years ago at the age of 96.
Yep. That’s huge too!
Yep. Like Olivia De Hamoland and Kirk Douglas and Doris Day.
I’m surprised you haven’t asked why I’m up so late. Lol good night
Why are you up so late?😡
I wasn’t talking to you. Lol
Oh. Oops! Second sorry of the day!
Ha! It’s okay
LOL! It’s only afternoon where I am, so I keep forgetting that you aren’t on the same time frame as I am. Plus, I stay up quite frequently, so that’s another reason why I don’t notice.
Then I’m in good company!
You both are great company! Lol
hehe no kidding
Yes, show & say what needs to be seen & heard before it’s too late. To paraphrase a Mark Twain quote: We will regret the things we don’t do more often that that which we did do. Hoping for you many good breaks from the pain. I know it well.
Thank you for the quote and the comfort, friend!
Thank you Joy Journal!
I’m so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you on this hard day!
Thank you, Robyn!
So sorry for your loss.
Thank you If Baird!
I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. She looks and sounds like such a sweet lady.
Thank you! At 96, I am sure your grandmother had a lot to impart to us youngsters.
I’m pretty sure she did – but I never actually met her.
Oh, I see.
So very sorry… My prayers are with you and your loved ones.
Thank you! I appreciate the thoughts and prayers!
Sorry for your loss🙏🏻🌺
Thank you Olga!
Grandmothers are very special and very good at creating fond memories to take their grandchildren through difficult times…including the very difficult time when they must leave us.
Agreed. Thank you for your kind words!
Thank you. You are a sweetheart.
