Grandma "Moo"

When I was a little girl my Grandma and Grandpa "Moo" (on my dad's side) lived on a big, beautiful farm. Hence, the reason for "Moo". This is how a differentiated between both sets of Grandparents. They have always been Grandma and Grandpa Moo to our family. A funny little endearment only we and close friends understand.

My Grandpa Moo passed away in July of 2002.

My Grandma Moo currently lives in a nursing home and is nearing the end of her beautiful life.

I went to see her this past weekend and hardly recognized her. My sweet, kind-hearted, gentle Grandma Moo, slowly slipping away. It was tough. The nurses had her sitting up, trying to eat lunch, but she wasn't awake. She's tired, so, so tired. Her hands are clenched and she struggles to communicate. She knew I was there. She knew that I whispered "I love you" in her ear. She groaned when I mentioned certain people's names. She's frustrated. She wants to go.... I have benn praying ever since that she goes peacefully. I want her to fall into a peaceful, wonderous sleep and just not wake up. I want her to be at peace. I want it to gentle.

I want her to be reunited with my Grandpa again.

I want her to meet Nicholas...

The doctor's say that it is only a matter of days... my heart aches.

Sweet dreams my beautiful Grandma Moo. You will always have such a special place in my heart.

My heart aches for you. When my dad was so ill and my mom was very old & in a nursing home, I prayed for them to go to Heaven and be at peace, too. Thinking of you & praying for your Grandma Moo. xoxo
