Gone but not forgotten

Dear Father in law called in this morning to advise the family that his mother, my Dear husbands grand mother passed away this morning. Grand ma will sadly be missed, she passed away very piecefully at the age of 101 years .
( how bazzard that this should be my 101 post).
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
This week may been a little Topsy ......
Family to arrange funeral arrangements
DH and I celebrate 30 years of marriage (Tuesday)
YS in Hospital Thursday - having Wisdom Teeth removed (He has never been in hospital since birth 25 years ago ?)
Unfortunately work schedule in quite busy (but that will be on hold for a few days)
I will draw my giveaway (as per last posting)

sorry to hear of DH's Grandma's is the first anniversary today of my Dad's passing ...he was 88 - so thought your little verse was very apt. Take some time out for yourself in the busy and probably very emotional week ahead.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I agree with Lorraine, make sure you get some you time.

I am very sorry for your loss. I lost my grandmother several years ago and still miss her to this day. I'm sure you have wonderful memories of her that you'll have forever.
On a happy note, Happy Anniversary to you.
