My heart never felt so much pain
The sky came together and dropped lots of rain
I thought my life was coming to an end
All I know is I will never give in
You were the reason I became who I am
You hold my life in the palm of your hand
You showed me right from wrong
But the day you died everything went wrong
You knew me oh so well
The day you died my heart fell
I will never forget you until I die
Maybe someday we will meet up in the sky
I know the lord took you cause it was time
But he should of let me say the right goodbye
I think of you from day to day
Wondering what you would think of me today.

My grandmother just died today, and I miss her already. She was the one I could tell all my ideas to, the person I could tell anything to. I miss you, Grandma, and I love you forever.

I never thought this day would come, but it just happened so fast. We never discussed how things would be or what we would do without you. Since this morning, we've been in tears and wish that you were still here. Our hearts are broken, and you're gone. Cardiac arrest took someone we loved. Rest in peace, Grandma. This was the day you flew with the angels when they took you away. My love for you will never end. You were indeed my dearest friend. A heart of gold, you were the best. I hope you know you will be missed.
-04/15/17 - Rest In Peace, Grandma Hogan!

Grandma, you are my source for happiness. You are bound to my heart with the epic stories which you taught in my childhood. You created a friendly environment whenever you were with me. Now I realize how bad you have felt staying alone in a house with no one beside you. Days passed away, seeds turned to plants, and plants turned to trees. We have grown up in the absence of you, but you are always with us, Grandma. When time goes on, the priority of the person changes, so I think you changed your first priority to God and left us alone. We miss you a lot, Grandma. We really miss you. Love you!

I was sad when my great grandmother passed away I moved to America but my grandmother stayed with my sisters and brothers in Asia. I never got to see my grandmother the last time before she passed away. I feel sad every night and day because of this reason. I know everyone has to die but she was so close to being a 100 years old she died of age 99. Her birthday was 3 days away from her death. I have too much stress and agony I wish I she could have got her present before she went with The Lord. Her smile was like a million angels. She was kind she was a very good cook. She never told me her recipe.

I lost my mom 13 years ago, and in 2012 I lost my grandmother, aunt and uncle, and my uncle lost his mother as well. I think that the most important thing is to talk about your feelings with whoever you feel comfortable talking to. It was a huge help for me. I was 21 when my mother passed away suddenly, and my little sister was just 18 years old. It was very hard and still is hard for me. I wrote everything I felt in notebooks and journals because I wasn't able to express what I felt to my family. But I realized just how important it is to express your feelings. The sadness of loosing someone that you love and that bond that you had with them will never go away, but the hurt that feels like a knife, it starts to feel a little less stinging after a while. When I think of my grandmother and my mother I think of them talking with one another and laughing about the dumb stuff that I did at one time or another. Or my grandmother telling my mother about how I went back to school and got my Master's degree. Or telling my mom that she has two beautiful grandsons that are a splitting image of her, and my mother yelling at my grandmother saying that she knows because she watches over all of us all the time.
I think of them all and smile, because the memories they make me happy now, not sad. You will get there, it will just take time.

Rosalinda: my grandma died 12 years ago. I was 13. Today she would have been 90. The pain never goes away, but I take comfort in the memories I have with her. Some of my cousins were too small to remember her so I'm grateful for the pictures and memories. Stay strong girl. Look for a song by dmx. Its called "I miss you" its a song he wrote for his grandma.

When will I stop hurting so bad I'm 11 years old and my grandma died 8 months ago but still I cry myself to sleep every night since my grandma died. My mom and dad told me to talk to my auntie and I broke down a little but I still hurt so much and my sisters and brothers seem ok and could talk about her and go to her grave without crying or being sad but I still feel like she died yesterday and everyday I think to myself when will the pain go away? When will the sadness go away? When will the day come that I don't cry myself to sleep? When will I just be ok.?
