Sorry for your loss. I lost my grandad 5 years ago this October. He was my rock, I miss him everyday. You must take each day as it comes and enjoy the Christmas season as im sure your nanna wherever she maybe will be happy that you do.

I'm very sorry to hear that. I lost my Grandfather over 10 years ago and still I bawl my eyes out if my parents bring up what my Grandfather and I have done when I was little. It makes it a bit easier to know he is up in heaven watching down!
*hugs*

I'm so sorry for your loss! Grandmas are one of a kind, aren't they. I hope you're able to find peace and enjoy the holiday season knowing your nana is still with you in spirit.

I think my Nanny loved Christmas more than we did, even as kids! Her favorite Christmas song was Silent Night, too. I think about her every time I hear that song. She started having strokes & dementia set in in 1999. That Christmas was harder than the first Christmas after she died in 2005. For us, the Nanny we knew had been gone for almost six years before she died. 2005 was our first Christmas with out new baby too, as I was pregnant with DD when Nanny died. DD is a lot like Nanny sometimes! We will always miss her, but we think of her in the first 79 healthy years, not the last sick 6 years.

Nanny's husband, my Pappaw, died two days before Thanksgiving in 1981. We buried him on Thanksgiving Day. Talk about depressing. No turkey dinner that year and lots of tears. Christmas that year was hard on my family and every year on Christmas Eve, my Nanny & uncle ended up shedding a few tears because they missed him so much. However, their belief was that the children still needed a happy Christmas and they would carry on the best they could. That first Christmas, we had our festivities at our house instead of Nanny's house since the wound was still so fresh. After that, we went back to Nanny's for Christmas every year. We tried to keep that up even after she got sick, but it really got depressing because she didn't like lots of people around and would get upset. After two Christmases of that, we decided to have Christmas at my parent's house next door and have a caregiver stay with Nanny during that time. It hurt, but it was better for everyone that way.

Our loved ones would want us to be happy, so that's how I try to think of it!

It doesn't matter how old you are. You can still miss someone just as much as if you were a little one! Cry and let your hurt show. Don't keep it bottled up inside! And yes, with time it will get easier. It'll still hurt, but not as bad.

This will be my 20th Christmas without my mother, and every year I tear up when I think of her during the holiday season, it will always feel like something is missing.

I understand more than you know on how you feel. Please know you have a bunch of wonderful friends here that care and if you need to talk or anything please feel free to pm me and we will talk as long as you need to! I lost my dad when I was 10 my momma when I was 18 and my adoptive father in 2005. different people deal with death different ways this is how I deal with my feelings. I wrote this when I was 11 Years old and I hope it helps you and RavenHard in some small way.GOD bless yall!!!



Did you see the single star in the sky last night?
I'm that star that shines so bright.

When you think of me,
and the tears begin to flow,
and when your heart ache,
seems to grow and grow,
Just think of me,
and then you'll know.


As sure as there is sunshine,
that follows a summer rain,
so too there will be happiness again
to ease your greif and pain.

as sure as darkness of the night,
gives way to the light of day,
the problems that perplex your mind,
with FAITH will fade away.

As springtime follows winter,
and the earth is born anew,
you'll find you'll never walk alone,
for I'm a part of you.


So please for me
try not to cry
I'm forever in your heart,
and Angels never die!

Im very sorry to hear about your loss and everyone elses on here also. When you lose someone you love I dont think there is one answer on how to cope or make things better. Just take it day by day. My Grandfather (Dad's Dad) Birthday was on Christmas Day. He passed away on December 2nd. Of course that first year was super hard since not only was it Christmas but also his Birthday. When someone passes away I always feel like I handle my pain like a child. Everyone copes differently. I wish you peace and goodluck with everything.
