Granny says goodbye

Hello All.

Wendy left us this morning.
Thank you so much for all your prayers and kind words.
She loved reading all your comments.

I was going to tell you all about how we met.
But now I find I just can’t.
It is still too fresh.

Suffice to say I have lost a dear friend.
One I loved so much.

Rest in peace my darling.


  1. Ah Kath, really feel for you, she is safe and out of pain now. (((HUGS)))

  2. you have not lost her Granny , she is only in the next room waiting for you!
    Now that she is in God’s care, she will have no more pain.

    I am so sorry that you have been parted, my love goes out to you and to her family.

    God be with you all xxxx

    • Thanks Patrecia…nice thought…another nice person waiting for me.

    • beautifully said misswhiplash

  3. Just keep remembering all the good stuff, she will never really leave you then.

    Hugs to you.

    • No Sidey….she will never leave me.

      • But it still hurts like crazy, hugs to you. It will take a long time to think of her without that gut-wrenching feeling.

  4. I am so sorry Kathy, even when we know it’s going to happen and that it’s better for the person concerned it is still an enormous blow. You think you are prepared but we never are. Thinking of you, rest in peace Wendy.

    • thanks so much Sue…I know you understand.

  5. Sharing your feelings of grief, but in the end all is for the better.

    • My brain agrees, my heart is arguing.

  6. So sorry to hear this Kathy, but it is a consolation for you to know that she is suffering no more; she is at peace at last. My heart goes out to you and everyone else who loved this very brave lady. Hugs

    • Thank you Barb…I was expecting it but damn, it hurts.

    • Thanks Pussycat…yes…I like to think that she is flying free now.

  21. She has no more pain

    • I know Adair…my feelings are selfpity!

  22. Isn’t it amazing Granny that through your words, all of us in a way , got introduced to her and we all got to love her in varying degrees and wish that she did not have to suffer. I’m sure she’s smiling at you. Why , when someone is physically distant and we don’t get to see them, we do handle the separation. I guess we can console ourselves by believing that the departed person is in another land somewhere.

    • Hi Nadira…wish I could just pretend she was in another city.
      I can’t ever remember feeling this bad…except for my second husband.

  23. Sincere condolences Kathy. You’re in our prayers.

    • Thank you so much Jacui…people have been incredible.

  26. I am sorry Granny. I am sending you comforting energy.

    • Thank you Rumpy…all these positive vibes must be working…have finally stopped crying.
