Grandma Mary

I've been away from my computer for quite a few days now. I have found in the last week that there are far more important things than sitting at the computer pretending to be spending time with family!
This past Thursday, my boyfriend's grandma passed away. I was so glad that we had gone to see her on Wednesday night. And I was glad the whole family could be there when she went. She was surrounded by so much love it was an amazing event.
Being with Jesse now for over 9 years, I considered Grandma Mary as my own grandma. She was an extremely special lady...a true one-of-a-kind! She was the kind of grandma that everyone met and wanted as their own! She had great taste in clothing, she drank Busch Lite, she always had something funny to say, and she could put a smile on your face at any given time! I am so fortunate to have had her in my life :)
Even though I am extremely saddened by this event, I am happy she did not have to suffer. I am happy to have known her. I am happy she raised such wonderful children to continue her legacy. I am happy we got to celebrate her life the night of her passing. I am happy to have SO MANY fond memories of her :) And I am happy I can call her Grandma!!!
So even though I know our computers are important and necessary...go visit a loved one now and then! I know I will be going to see my own grandparents today!
