My grandma (or B’s as we like to call her) passed away yesterday evening around 5:40. I never thought I would have to say goodbye to her so soon.
Just a few months ago she was one of the healthiest grandmas I knew. We would even brag about how healthy and mobile she was. She would get down on the floor, sit indian style (which I can’t even do sometimes) and play with the boys.
Around Thanksgiving she found out that she had bone cancer. We knew it was everywhere and it wasn’t treatable, but it was just so hard to digest that she could be feeling fine one day…and the next day be told she had bone cancer all throughout her body.
This is a picture of her and all the great-grandbabies on her birthday this year. She was so happy when she was around the kiddos!
My kids ADORED her!
We had the chance to visit her about a month ago. She was still doing pretty good then. Not in too much pain. Still living by herself. Doing most things by herself. It was just in the last week to 2 weeks that she really started going fast. I am so thankful that she didn’t have to suffer too long, but I am sooooo sad that she was taken from us so soon.
She lives about 5 hours away so we didn’t get to visit her as much as we would like. But, we spent EVERY holiday at her house. I have always had a special bond with B’s. One that I can’t explain. When we went up north to visit family, it wouldn’t matter which family members house we were at, I would always call B’s to come pick me up. I just wanted to be at her house.
I just can’t imagine how hard the next few weeks and next few holidays are going to be without our B’s. She will be more than missed by our family!
I love you more than words B’s!
