Red Poppies


I just wanted to say my sincerest thank you to all of you for your wonderful and kind words on the passing away of my grandma. I cannot begin to describe the feeling I have been having since I got the terrible news. It's just like a bottomless pit - I know I will never see her again and will never do the many things I had wanted to do with her. The most important one being giving Soeren a chance to meet the unique person she was.

As I got each one of your comments in my previous post, I cried and cried again. It was like I was being cleansed. Initially I was not sure if I should share this on the blog - but this is life and it effects me and my life. So, I just had to show my grandma in my own way that she will be so missed. What better way to do it than dedicating a Saints cake to her.

I thank you for sharing this moment with me, for your thoughts and prayers.

  13. Ivonne, in all her wisdom (god bless her) reminded me to let myself cry as it is a cleansing process. Facing the pain is a good way to move forward.
    Celebrate her life, personality, achievements, weaknesses and quirks with Soeren. It is a good way to pay her hommage, and for him to get to know her through you.

  14. Thanks everyone. Each individual comment has worked like a soothing balm and I am still in complete amazement at the support you all have shown and the affection you are sharing.

    Thank you!

  15. Dear Meeta,

    Sorry to hear that your grandma has passed away, or better yet, she has moved to her next stage in being, watching over you and your family. Also being with you in a different way. Years ago as I was having a difficult moment, I felt the presence of my grandma very close, telling me that it would all work out well. That kept me going. I wish you the same experience, feeling the presence of her in your life, and giving you strength when you need it.

  16. It's so tough to get through it. Sending more (())s. I don't know if this is of interest or not, but red is a spiritual colour, and the red in your picture shimmers so much it looks like silk :)

  17. So sorry to hear of your loss. If I could I'd bring you cookies and hugs.

  18. Meeta,
    You and your family are in my thoughts during this difficult time. I'm so sorry for your loss.


  19. Meeta, my deepest condolences on your loss, may her sould rest in peace. Know that she will always see you from above and be in yur heart always, grandparents are angels that always watch over you. regards and luv rachna

  20. Dear Meeta ~ I missed the news, I'm so sorry. It's hard to be a long way from family at certain moments. Be well, I miss both my grandmothers, even 25 years after their deaths.

  21. Hi Meeta, I'm lucky to still have both my grandmothers, but the bare thought of losing them (as I have lost all my grandfathers) is unbearable.
    My condolences..

  22. I've been away and have only just read your sad news. Grandmas are such special people. My thoughts are with you Meeta.

  23. Dear Meeta, the loss of a dear one is very, very hard. my thoughts are with you.Lots of love and warm hugs.

  24. Once again ladies, I do so appreciate your support and condolences. Thank you!
