Yesterday morning my lovely grandmother Gigi went on to visit Jesus.
I’m so lucky that I got to be with her in her last few weeks. We thought she was going to die last week, so I got off work early and drove to be with her. I looked up any passage I could find on heaven and read them aloud to her for hours, crying with my mom and sister in anticipation of her new home.
This past weekend I was lucky enough to spend three days by her side, waiting with my mom and aunts as we all admired the gracious life she lived as she took her last few breaths. It was one of the sweetest and most cherished moments of my life.
I will miss her dearly, but know that she is in a better place with a perfect mind and body. And I simply cannot wait to celebrate her life this weekend with the family that she loved.
