“Her Last Journey Home”


Description from puppychick labratbecky: My grandma, age 98, was just moved from assisted living to the nursing home. She doesn't know who we are and has no short term memory but she remains the happiest and most contented person I have ever known. Someday soon she will be joining my grandpa and her 9 siblings in heaven. The pink is the life she made happy and the blue is the twilight she is now in. Love you, Grandma!

    Oh Becky. Your story brought tears to my eyes. We went through something similar a year ago with my 94 year old grandfather. While it is sad I remind myself he lived a full life, and had a peaceful passing surrounded by family. My thoughts are with you and your family. I know this is a difficult time.

    You all are so sweet and caring. My dad talked to me about her yesterday and I didn’t realize how this affected me until I started creating this pick. I was her first grandchild and I think we had a special bond. I hope and pray that her last days are all this peaceful.

    Wow. What a wonder at all the things your Grandma saw during her life! She is a treasure. While she may be near twilight, I can tell she is well loved. What a wonderful pick for your Granma, Becky. Peace be with you and her.
