I just got a call a few minutes ago that my grandmother passed during the night. she was 98. some of you may recall that my dad's mom passed in March. So this means I've lost both grandma's in about 3 months.
I have to deliver some art to a church conference in Harrisburg today. My daughter's graduation party is friday evening. I'm playing a wedding saturday. grandma's funeral will be friday. I'm not sure how I'm gonna do all this.
I once told my grandmother that she'd never die. she did a pretty good job of proving it to be true.

This is one of those times where words fail, time seems to stop and the real important stuff comes to the fore.
Just remember all the love.
Sending you a huge long hug....

Thanks so much for keeping me in your prayers. It was quite a week! everything that needed to be done was accomplished. After putting grandma to rest on friday morning, life continued. My daughter's grad party was very nice, and she received enough money that she may be able to pay off the balance for her french horn (she's going to be a music major...hmm, I wonder where she got that?)
Saturday I played at a wedding ceremony and attended the reception with my partner. We had such a great time, dancing and laughing and drinking! it really was what a wedding should be. Plus, the groom is mexican, and we got to do the "el muertito" carrying him around the reception hall while the dj played the funeral march. then we threw the groom into the air 3 times! he lost his pants :o
and today, being father's day, my kids pulled through and gave me a book by an author I enjoy, and a dvd of "Into the Woods"
Life! gotta love it!

Like everyone else, I am so sorry for your loss of your grandmother. I know how hard that is, having lost both my grandmas within a year of each other. I have to say that you have had a lot to deal with in the past months that I have been a member here, with your ex, with your kids, with your lawyers and all that. I have to say that you are trooper and a real hero for, as I see it, not becoming bitter and angry, but being humble, asking for prayers and knowing that God is going to see you through whatever comes your way.
My prayers are with you and your partner. I know he is a great support to you, and I hope that your kids someday get past all this stuff with your ex and you. Congrats to your daughter on her graduation. Keep your chin up. You are going to make it. You have a lot of your grandma in you, and you are a survivor. Take courage, my friend and be strong. Prayers, and lots of hugs... :pray: :pray: :pray:

Hey Keltic: I am so glad that you checked in with us. It sounds like your whole weekend was a blend of death and life, all mixed into one. It really sounds like what followed putting your grandma to rest was some much needed celebrating of life continuing in a grand fashion. I am so glad for you that you have a partner who you are happy with, and children to feel blessed with. I wish your daughter happiness and good fortune in her future as well. Continue to take good care of yourself in your daily living. Talk with you here soon. Peace and prayers, Vanessa :love: :pray:
