She was my Mom's mother. And my mom and her sister were by Granny's side for the last few weeks. Mom said it was very hard. I bet it was. My mom's sister, Gail is a Hospice Nurse by trade so she was very prepared for what to expect. Granny lived with Gail so she had already been caring for her for several years. They made sure she was comfortable. They shared some laughs and some special time together. What a treasure.
Those two sisters stayed by their mom's side until the very end. What a gift that is to have people who love you right beside you as journey through the final stages of life. I know it was their honor and privilege to be there with her.
There aren't many like my Granny. She was loved and will be missed. Rest in Peace, Granny.
