My dad's mother, "Granny" is losing her battle with cancer. The doctor has told us that it's time to call in the family. I have been blessed for all of my 33 years to know Granny. Everyone who knows her has been blessed, she's that kind of person. In her younger years, she was stunningly beautiful. Tall, blonde and full of the kind of fire that all men look longingly after. She had movie star looks when nobody knew what that meant. She's squeezed every last drop out of life, and now it looks like it's time for her to go home. In typical Granny fashion, she'll probably curse death and sadness and try to get one of us to sneak her in a beer or something..... she's just that way. There is literally nobody on planet earth that knows her, that doesn't absolutely adore her. She has been the best grandparent ever, she has spoiled me for as long as I can remember.... letting me sleep under the Christmas tree, always buying me toys when we went to the store, cooking me whatever meal I wanted at any time, letting me pick out my Christmas presents, taking me fishing anytime I wanted, in my older years she gave me a boat, ad nauseum... In the later years after my grandpa died, it wasn't unusual to find her at the same bars that we went to, having a beer with her friends. She's been known to try to order a beer in intensive care, tell dirty jokes to doctors, and she's even decked some silly lady who bad-mouthed our family name. She has grabbed life by the throat and choked the very breath out of it. :lol: Now she's ready to go. She's known that she is dying, and she's ready. There's no stopping her when she makes up her mind to do anything, and this will be no different. She raised 3 boys and 6 grandkids and we're all gonna miss her like nothing else. This is gonna be the toughest death that I've ever had to deal with. Please just pray that my Granny will go peacefully and painlessly. The rest of us will be alright, but it wll be painful. Thanks.
