    Dear Elsy,

    Thinking of you.



    Dear Elsy, where has 2 years gone? I know how you must miss your Grandma but I am sure she is always around you and know that she is healthy and happy where she is whole again.

    • I wish heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again.
    • I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
    • I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
    • I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
    • All I have are memories and pictures in a frame.
    • Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part.
    • God has you in his arms…I have you in my heart


    Thank you everyone. We are coming up on her 2 year anniversary of when she left us. I’m having a hard time with it. It’s been very difficult without her and I can’t stop thinking what this time 2 years ago was like. Seeing her wither away was so painful.

    I miss her terribly…


    Dear Elsy, I am so sorry to read about your beloved Grandma. Like Darla said it takes time but the good will outweigh the bad memories and I am positive she would want to see you happy and smiling again. Please accept my condolences.

    From a book of blessings called “Benedictus” by John O’Donohue – Irish Poet & Philosopher

    When you lose someone you love,
    Your life becomes strange,
    The ground beneath you becomes fragile,
    Your thoughts make your eyes unsure;
    Your heart has grown heavy with loss.
    And though this loss has wounded others too,
    No one knows what has been taken from you
    When the silence of absence deepens.
    There are days when you wake up happy;
    Again inside the fullness of life,
    Days when you have your heart back,
    You are able to function well
    Until in the middle of work or encounter,
    Suddenly with no warning,
    You are ambushed by grief.
    More than you, it knows its way
    And will find the right time
    To pull and pull the rope of grief
    Until that coiled hill of tears
    Has reduced to its last drop.
    Gradually, you will learn acquaintance
    With the invisible form of your departed;
    And when the work of grief is done,
    The wound of loss will heal
    And you will have learned
    And be able to enter the hearth
    In your soul where your loved one
    Has awaited your return
    All the time.


    Dear Elsy,

    I have been thinking about you and wondering how you are doing. I know exactly how you are feeling and what you are going through right now. All I can tell you is that those feelings never really go away, but they will soften in time. The good times will eventually out weigh the bad.

    It’s often said that God does not give us more than we can handle so I am figuring he thinks we are all very strong. :)

    Just go with it and take it one day at a time.

    Love & Hugs,


    I’m so sorry for your pain. :(

    Trust in the Lord, and he will see you through this. I will pray for you.


    She was like a mother to me. She was my muse. She was in my life for 40 years and then CC came in and stole her away from us all, leaving us all empty, lost and devastated. I am completely emersed in this overpowering grief and sorrow. It’s been two weeks since I last saw her, since CC took her away. The vision of her lifeless body and face will never escape my memory. All the beautiful memories, pictures and videos do nothing to console me, in fact, they make me feel worse. A reality of what I will never have again. She was everything. Oh how I long to hear her sweet voice again, hug and kiss her. I wish we could sit and laugh as we used to. Wish I could hear her wise advice once again. I’m so lost. I miss her more and more with each passing day. Oh Lord please help me through this darkest hour of my life…

    I miss you grandma, I miss you every single day. R.I.P.
