Last night my beautiful, beautiful, beautiful grandmother passed away.

I don't know how to say how much I'll miss her. She was a force in my life that was grounding and true. She loved me fiercely.

I know my Grandpa will miss her beyond words (they just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary) and my parents and all our other family. She is an incredible woman, with a red-headed temper and the most loving arms. She loved them all just as fiercely. You could feel her love, from way, way off.

I wouldn't want her to come back and be sick again. I just wish sometimes that everything could stay like it was before.
