Quiet, i know

Ok, know i have been a little quiet, my mom had called me friday afternoon while i was at work (she is 3 hours later than i am). It seemed like an odd time for a call from her and i was in the middle of doing a set of eyelash extensions on someone. I commented later to a person at work as i sat getting ready to check my messages. She asked what was up, i had said i was almost afraid to check my messages as i had a bad feeling that my grandmother had died. She was ill but we had just had the doctors give her a 4-6 month prognosis. Nothing out of the ordinary on the message though so.... next morning my phne rang as i was getting ready for work and hubby answered. After he came in i had told him how the day before i had been afraid to check my messages. He just gave me a hug and said that was my mom just on the phone and that gram had died the evening before. I know she lived a full life and having been so ill for so long that she is in a better place and with grandad now, i don't know if it is guilt that we have not been in close touch lately (i even had a card on the counter ready to mail to her with a pic of my daughter), that due to long distances i had not seen her in a long time....yeah, i guess guilt. I know my gram was not a perfect lady, especially to my mom when she was growing up. Gram i do have to say always stuck by me as i was growing up. I feel badly now though. It seems so many family members have been passing away over the last few years. lol, i guess we are all just getting older, sucks though, smile. So i may be a bit quiet here and there for a few days more. She was my last grandparent (as my dads mom and i have no relationship, sadly that side of the family disappeared years ago) So leapyear had an additional memory now. That's all....

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry. Thank you so much for being so thoughtful, telling me you were sorry about Jack, when your grams had died. If you need anything, let me know. *HUGS*

Oh, yeah, and we didn't have a funeral for him... actually, I don't know what to do with him... I mean, I can't flush him, he's too special, and my mom's being mean and won't let me bury him in our little pet cemetary, so I'm not sure what to do. Thank you though. :)
