Since my childhood my grandmother always told me this day would come with the hopes it would spare me pain. It didn't work, I mourn with great pain and dispair, but feel peace because I was fortunate to have her in my life. Wherever my grandmother was, it was home for me. Because she represented the stability and security I needed as a child. I own my life to her and I can never repay my debt. Her departure leaves a vacuum in my life so big it numbs, but her memories still bring warth even when tears are cold. Today I find myself yearning for the days when I was 14 and my grandmother would wake up before I went to school to make sure I ate oatmeal. God, I hated oatmeal. but would eat an eternity of it if it kept my grandmother alive forever. My grandmother knew she was special, no evidence rings more true then the people crying her in the mountains of Puerto Rico, the Rainer Valley of Washington State, the permafrost of Rochester and on their drive through the glorious fog of San Francisco. So my family mourns a women beloved by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nephews, nieces, friends and all the dogs and cats she saved and made me catch. I will always miss you in life and hope to see you in eternity. Te amo abuelita.
- Henry
