On October 25th I got a call from Mom that she had to take Grandma to the emergency room for a really bad headache. The next day we got the news that she had a brain tumor. It took another week for them to figure out that it came from lung cancer that she had for years that nobody ever caught. She started radiation in November to shrink the brain tumor, that worked well. Then she started chemo to try to treat the lung cancer. It didn't tough it at all. So in April she went on hospice. She got progressively worse and on July 10th with mom and I by her side she took her last breath and went to meet up with grandpa after being apart for 14 years.

Its been hard not having her here with me during the day, especially since I was her primary caregiver most of the time. The house is empty and I feel as though I have nothing to do but she is no longer suffering and I know she is happy again. I just miss her. Love you grandma!

I am so sorry for you loss. I can't imagine how hard it is. You are right, she is in a better place, but she will always be with you in your heart.
