Missing Grandpa

My grandfather was an active, loving, silly, and wonderful man. Although he was eighty-three years old at the time of his death, it was still a shock. He could no longer stand the pain, the feeling of helplessness because of his declining health, and in the end, he did it his way. He chose to end his life with a...

This Change And The Emotions That Come With It

Death is like a foreign country in which we don't know how to speak the language correctly. We are dealing with a different “dialect” than we are used to. It is kind of like growing up and living in Maine all your life, then moving to Louisiana. You can get along, but you're going to stumble your way through it...

Embracing What You Taught Me

You and I had only been married 3 short years when you died July 16, 1989. We both came from bad marriages, and despite our age difference of 19 years, we fell in love and built a happy life together. 18 months after our wedding, you were diagnosed with cancer.
On the night you died, I was holding your hand and...

When Two Different Perspectives Collide

“Do you think we're all unique grandma?” “Why dear, I've told you as much many times” “Do you think you're unique?” “I may not be a very exciting woman, but I am one of a kind. Why do you ask?” 'Because ever since your diagnosis when we all knew your time was limited, you still give us all the impression you have little to offer...

Looking For Peace Of Mind

We have a senior family member who is now officially seeing his last days. It might be 10, it might be a thousand, but it is imminent. You can tell by talking to him that there is so much more he wants to share with his loved one's before he goes. It is a very bittersweet thing to be a...

Sometimes You Do Not Have To Look Very Far

Thinking back on everyone I have known in my life, I would have to say that my greatest inspiration in my life was one of my older brothers. When I was growing up, life was a bit harder for me than for most. There were things I didn't “get” that seemed to come easy for others. I remember him telling...

Along the way

Now is the time I just have to look back. That's something I've always avoided. From the past, I'd take the lessons learned but I wouldn't allow any more than that into my thoughts. Now it's unavoidable. The thing I notice the most is how little I know, especially when I take into account the fact I thought I knew...

My One True Love

I thought I'd known love until I held my daughter in my arms for the first time. The feeling is something only a parent knows. It's as if your life is completed, as if you've finally found the love you've been looking for. You instantly know that you'd do anything for this child, that you never want to lose her...

A part of me can stay

When thinking about the day I won't be around, I of course think about those I will leave behind. I think about what is it that awaits them, and how will it be for them without me around. It's not that I don't believe that they can make it on their own, it's just that I feel that I could...

The Gift Of Time WIth You Again

I lost my parents when I was young. My father succumbed to colon cancer when I was 12, and my mother passed away from breast cancer 23 months later. There is so much I think I know about my parents, like the things I remember from my time with them, but even with all of my memories, there is just...
