My grandmother passed away last night

I got another call from my mother this morning. My grandmother passed away last night at 11:07pm. During the last hour of her life, I was writing about her on this blog. I don't know what to think about that, but I hope she could feel me thinking about her. I'm sad that she's gone, but I'm happy that her suffering is over. And I know she is in a better place.

I'm sorry for your loss. My grandmother recently passed away, and also had Alzheimer’s. I know how you feel about the suffering being over. Although it's sad none the less.
