|Gran on her wedding day|
She did not "pass on" or "pass away" or any of the other "I can't say the word" euphemisms that abound. She died.
She lived a full life and had the added privilege of having lived in her own home, to the end, always surrounded by her family. How cool is that? Not many people nowadays can say that.
I am so very grateful to my Mum's Brother and all my Cousins for making that kind of a life possible for my Gran. It has always been such a wonderful, warm, fuzzy "thing" to me knowing that she had that.
I am especially thankful for the care that they took of her in the last month of her life. Big HUGS all round.
I am heartsore for Mum.
