Goodbye Gram

My grandma died this morning.

It’s so odd to post this right after posting my essay about losing my grandfather 25 years ago. I feel as if I should say more in her honor but it’s too much right now. I don’t want my grandma to be gone.

She was non-responsive the past couple of days and I have been torn about whether I should have dropped everything and driven out to Ohio. I kept thinking would she want me there? Yes. But would she want me to see her in a coma and have my last memory of her be like that? No.

There’s no right answer to that one. Either way I’m left crying.
