My Grandmother…

My beloved grandma, the sweetest woman i know, has gone to be with our Lord tonight. She passed away in her sleep.

While i’m glad she crossed over peacefully, i’m so very sad to not be able to see her one more time. i would have liked to see her one more time; to tell her, even if she does not understand me (my Hokkien, our chinese dialect, is simply terrible), how much i love her and how much she means to me.

She showed me it is possible to simply quietly love someone, even if they are unaware of how much you do love them, even if they are not appreciative of it.

My beloved Mama… i miss you…

This is the last photo i took of my Grandma – it was at her 99th/100th birthday last year. There was some discussion as to whether it was really her 100th or not… some confusion with how birthdays are counted traditionally…

This one was taken the year before. This smiling face always greets me, when i yell from the doorway, “MAMA!”

This was 10 years ago – when my beloved Grandma & my dear Godma met my boy for the first time.

i have lost my grandma and Heaven has gained an angel. It will take time to accept that and not tear up thinking about her.
