My grandma died a few days ago. I never grew up with her but she was a c0nstant force in our family. She was a little grumpy from what I remember but when it came to me and her other apos, she was always kind and gentle and you know very lola-like.
It’s odd to lose someone so close when you’re too far away to grieve. I’m not as sad as I was when I heard about her passing but I still get misty eyed when I think about not being able to see her anymore during vacations.
I guess things will be quite different without her. It’s going to be a bleak Christmas after all.
