Wednesday 25th of July 2012

Today marks three and a half years since my son Cristian left me for heaven, and today I’ve had to say goodbye to another person I love. This morning, Wednesday, July 25, 2012, my grandmother, a woman who raised me as a child, passed away after five years battling with cancer and dementia. My grandmother lived a very long life but towards the end, she suffered greatly. It was hard to watch; her suffering reminded me of Cristian’s pain. But I’m sure they’re together right now, with Cristian bossing her around. I love you both very much and I’m glad you have each other.
