Earlier this morning, my great-grandmother( on my mother’s side ) Espérance (which means Hope in english) passed away at 103 years of age. We were expecting it for quite some time, but it is certainly saddening to see her go.
Thanks for the condolences, everyone. They’re always appreciated. So my weekend will be spent at the funeral house with family. She will be missed as she always had encouraging words when I visited her.
Heh, I don’t like how people get so sad at funerals, I heard somewhere “Funerals aren’t about mourning death, they are about celebrating life”. That’s what I think anyways. I hope she had a kickass time.
RIP - I remember when my grandfather died. I was unable to cry for him. I loved him quite possibly more than any other relitave outside of my mother and father and yet I was stone faced.
It wasnt untill a year later that I truly understood how much I missed him and I had a big break down. That was about 5 years ago though. Loosing loved ones is painfull. You have my sympathy and encouragement.
