I just got the call (well a couple hours ago) that my Grandmother (my Dad's mom) passed away early this morning. Dad was always the one who helped me through whenever someone died. He was always the one to comfort me and I just wish he was here to lean on now. I hate that we were never close to his side of the family. With him gone, and now my grandma gone too (grandpa died in 1985) I just feel like I am losing that whole side of my family.
I just needed to say something about that to someone. I can't post on Facebook yet because we are still notifying the family. This is just re-opening the wounds from when Dad died. I didn't think this call would hit me this hard. She had Alzheimer's and dementia and it was like she died 10 years ago when my uncle took her down south to live with him. I have one seen or talked to her once since then, and that was at my Dad's funeral. She didn't know me and if I tried to talk to her, it just upset her. I thought I had said my goodbye's. I guess I was wrong. That really took me by surprise.
I'm so sorry Stephanie. Its not uncommon for other losses to trigger your pain from losing your parent. And though we think we've said goodbye when someone moves away or we have no contact, there is still hope until the very end, isn't there? ((hugs))
