Haiku Friday - Memorial

Haiku Friday

We will miss her lots
such a presence in our lives
bye-bye my grandma

My grandma passed away on Sat of last week. She would have been 94 this month. Her funeral was on Tuesday. Then we sat shiva for three days to remember her. My family came in from all over the country to remember her life. She was the last remaining member of her brothers and sisters. It was a long tiring week but filled with family and stories of her. I am grateful for being able to know her and love her, she was truly a wonderful person. I am also grateful for being able to share my kids with her and them loving her as well.

Love the final picture- so happy! Sorry that your family is dealing with such a great loss. My gran died when she was only 65 and it was hard. Thinking of you...

I'm sorry for your loss, but I'm grateful that you had the gift of having her in your family's life for so long. What a treasure.

I hope the shiva helped to bring closure and peace and wrap you in the love of your family and friends.

Oh wow, I am so sincerely sorry for your loss. She looks and sounds like one amazing woman. That photo is simply priceless. 94? Wow, that's one full life.

You're in my thoughts and prayers HG.
