The picture in yesterday's post is of my Granny. She was more like my Mother to me than a Grandmother and we had a special bond like no other. She passed away in January of this year...on my Dad's birthday and while I was on a cruise.
She had been in and out of the hospital for over a month and the doctors had diagnosed her with congestive heart failure right before we left on our cruise. When we docked on Monday morning, I had a message from Bratty Nephew #1 that she had died. It was the single most difficult moment in my life and the drive home was very hard. Thankfully, she had made talked with my Dad and Aunt about her funeral and the arrangements were done by the time I got home.
I miss her.
