Today I said farewell to my grandmother.
She passed away last Monday, according to the doctor she died peacefully in her sleep somewhere between 11PM and 3AM.
I am truly at a loss of words. No one in my family expected this to happen.. She was as healthy as a 91 year old could be, she went walking and biking on a daily basis and at parties she always was the centre of attention. Despite smoking at least two packs a day and drinking a tad more than was good for her she could've lived to see 100. But she didn't. Instead she died of a heart attack in her sleep.
She had a very nice ceremony today, in total over 750 people came to show their final respects. I have been awake for over five days now, trying to come to senses with what has happened. And today when we, the grandchildren, carried her coffin to the oven (she wanted to be cremated) after the ceremony, I finally understood that it was the last time that I was going to see her.
Rest in peace, grandma, and thank you for everything you have done for me. You will be missed.
