I just wanted to thank everyone who sent such sweet & loving wishes about my Grandmother.  I really felt the Love.

She did pass away that evening.  She really was taken from us about 10 years ago from Alzheimer's.  She has had no real life for about the past 5.  It was so hard to see her over the past few years living that way.  Her passing is truly a blessing & I am really happy that she is free of that body & the pain of living in such a state.  It is always hard to lose anyone but I am finally able to really grieve her loss. 

She was a beautiful lady with such a spark.  She was such a loving Grandmother & I know how lucky I was to have her in my life.   She loved to cook & made the best Caramel Cake you have ever tasted.  She loved having her family around & always made any holiday a Big Event.  She especially loved Easter & always had Easter egg hunts for us when we were younger.  I am so glad that 3 years ago, after I moved back to KY, that I had an Easter egg hunt for my nieces & nephews at her house.  I went to the nursing home & brought her over for it.  I think for at least a few minutes, she understood.  She loved seeing the kids & seemed to enjoy it as much as they did.

I will miss her but I am so grateful that she is finally at peace.
