On January 2 we got some heartbreaking news that Grandma Bev had passed away. We were shocked since I had just talked to my mom an hour before and she said she was doing much better and was going home from the hospital in the morning. she was there for unrelated issues.
Although she wasn't doing well and had been having a very hard time lately with remembering things and a few other issues. No one would have guessed this would be the next step.
Even though we are deeply saddened by her passing I know she is in a better place. She is no longer suffering, and so happy being surrounded by her loved ones, which I truly believe include our little boy that is due in just a couple months. Just that thought alone has brought me so much peace at this time. I love the thought that in someway she is with all her grandchildren now. Who she loved and live for!
She was such a good lady, so kind, forgiving, hard working, and an amazing lady all around but nothing compares to what a wonderfully grandma she was. She truly was the best and I will be eternally grateful that I was blessed enough to be one of her grand kids.
It is NEVER easy to lose someone you love whether it is expected or not but I think the hardest part of this for me was seeing Grandpa Pudge deal with losing his sweetheart. It has been a good lesson in letting those you love know whenever possible.
The services for her were perfect everyone did a wonderful job, it was just what she would have wanted. It was amazing to see how many lives were touched by her and how loved she was by others. There were SO many flowers, cards, food, and gifts sent to the family it was over whelming but not at all surprising.

words you have spoken, the Love
you have shown to others, can
never be fully measured."
