    We had to lay to rest my grandmother this morning. She was 88 years old. She died on Tuesday afternoon in Gainesville, GA. She's been pretty bad off over the last few years, so it was a blessing. No more pain and sickness. Pneumonia is what finally killed her. She's been sick with that stuff for several months and just couldn't fight it off this time. She's gone to heaven now to be with my grandfather. Rest in Peace and we love you.

    Condolences, love, and prayers for you and your family. Sometimes the hardest part of a loss is remembering that it is OUR loss. The person who went to be home is at peace and surrounded with love and joy. Sounds like you have that awareness. It DOES make it easier to survive a loss with the knowledge that the loved one is at peace and in a place of joy and love.

    I'm sorry to hear the loss of your grandmother. I hope the messages posted here from fellow GTers provide you with some comfort. 88 is a great age to go. I'm sure she lived a rich and full life and is now away from her suffering and I'm have no doubt she's now among loved ones gone before her.

    I remember when my gma passed on, it was on my 25 birthday. I went to the hospital and she asked my family not to let me stay and see her like that so my dad drove me home.3 hours later, it poured down rain for no apparant reason and I knew she had gone.

    Later, a friend of mine,a deeply religious native american said that when people die, they go to heaven and become children again.He said death is not the end but the beginning,a return. It was comforting to know.


    Im sorry for your loss,may she be at peace.

    Prayers for you and your family bro. My GMA passed in '98 right after I graduated the academy and my GPA back in '86.
