Three Years Ago — 38 Comments

  1. I love your story about your Grandma. You are so fortunate to have someone like her. I can feel your loss especially at Thanksgiving. Your memories will always be with you. I am sure your Grandma watched you all and is happy to know you are having a great time.
    Best wishes to you.May you always be happy.

  2. What a lovely tribute to a woman who sounds amazing. Grandmas are something special, aren’t they? I lost my grandmother just over two years ago and I think about her every day.

  4. Completely, so, so beautiful. She sounds like an incredible woman, and you had a wonderful relationship with her. In spite of the sadness, how amazingly beautiful to be able to remember her so vividly, and the loveliness you shared together.

    Thank you for writing this.

  5. I am crying my eyes out. This helped me to heal a little today, because I was so close to my grandmother I felt crazy guilt for not spending more time with her. You cried when you wrote this, I have no doubt. You are a loving, good person. She is no doubt overwhelmed with pride for who you are and that she was your grandmother.

    • Oh yes, you better believe I was crying! It’s funny how the guilt creeps in… And I’m sorry about your grandmother. It is so hard losing someone we love. I am sure she knew how much you loved her.

  6. so my phone was flukey and I don’t know if this comment got to you so I will comment again…lucky you huh? Seriously your grandmother sounds like she was more than special. That guilt after death thing is funny … that we would think someone who didn’t judge us in life would in death …. or that we somehow fell short… I also wanted to say congrats on your sobriety which you also mentioned above… Ive read a few of those posts and you have been sober quite some time now correct? That’s awesome!

  7. Death of a loved one often invites guilt but on a good day, it can also invite us to share the legacy of that person, which you have so eloquently done above. Thank you for letting us know about her dedication to family and her warmth. There’s nothing more inspiring we can do for one another than share these types of stories.

  8. What a beautiful tribute to your grandmother. It is so wonderful that she made stuff for you that you still treasure and wear. Somewhere she is looking down at you and watching over you, I bet.

  9. This is a beautiful post, Natalie. Not for the first time, you’ve made me cry. It’s important to hold on the memories, and while it’s hard, sometimes death can be a mercy.

    I’m glad you got to have her in your life, unconditionally.
