My grandma and I had a very close bond. I always would confide In her for all my secrets. She would always give me the best advice. We would always be up late chatting , laughing, and listening to Nat King Cole. When I was younger I would stay with my grand parents a lot and grandma and I always had a spa day at home where I would always do her nails and pedis. The last few days grandma wasn’t talking much wasn’t eating and sleeping a lot. I had the last night there alone with her for quite some time and I will never forget that special night. Grandma opened her eyes and knew I was there she actually talked to me listened and when I asked my final advice from her she still gave the best answer. As I cried telling my goodbyes and how much I loved her and how I appreciated and looked up to her for a lot while I was younger she grabbed my hand looked at me and said don’t be sad or cry I love you Lyndsay. She never says those 3 words it’s always you too honey. She slowly started to close her eyes I said I will see you again grandma some day. She said goodbye honey. That has stayed in my mind since I went home and was exactly what I needed to hear. She knew I was there and that’s all I wanted her to feel know and see. She was an amazing lady. She cared so much for others and did so much always cooking. I know she lived a long happy life as she deserved. That gave me ease knowing she isn’t suffering and went in peace. So many stories and memories grandma we will always keep going and remembering. Definitely your onery attitude all the way up to 2 days prior you taking your last breath. We love you grandma and will miss you so much. Watch over us and when I talk to you at night I will hear your advice. Lillian said she will not cheat at playing your game like you did lol.
