She held on longer than any of us expected, but this morning my Grandmother lost her battle with cancer. She slipped into a "coma-like" state last night and died peacefully in her bed. My mother- heart broken, I am not sure it has sunk in yet. Me- I just want to be there for her and I am very, very happy that her suffering was not too great or too long and she had a calm and peaceful passing.
This picture below is last Thanksgiving when my Grandmother visited. She complained of a throat ache (throat cancer) and bronchitis, and an annoying cough that wouldn't go away (lung cancer.) It was shortly thereafter we learnt of her sickness. It was nice spending that last time with her while she was still well.She was able to spend quality time with her grandkids as well as her great-grands.
