My grandmother passed away
Posted 05 May 2012 - 01:27 PM
Aside from being sad to see her go, I'm also a bit sad because the family has lost its locus point- everyone converged on Grandma's at the holidays. Now we have to figure the next rendezvous point (can't be my place; I live Far Away).
I doubt people really think about this factor when the family matriarch/patriarch is on their way out. I would suggest discussing it so the planning of the next family holiday doesn't seem as strange.
It has also thrown in my face how I haven't built any strong connections in recent years after moving Away. I need to work on that.

It's true about the family drifting apart when the matriarch passes on. It happened in my family too. One of our cousins tried to carry on but it wasn't the same.

It came as no surprise; Grandma was on an obvious decline. She died peacefully, surrounded and cared for by family. She was a good woman and I have no doubt of where she is now.
