I'm so sorry to hear this, Jess. Hugs to you and Lil E. I will be including your family in my prayers.


So sorry for all of you. It is always sudden in the end-even when the end is a long time in coming.
Sending warmth and peace your way.


I am sorry for the loss you are going through.
When my mother died close to Christmas, our priest said, "This is the most joyous time to enter heaven." Those words were a comfort to me. I hope they will comfort you, too.


I recently experienced the loss of my grandmother too. I can imagine how deeply this must affect you, especially after so many years sitting by her side. The comfort that I found was knowing my grandma's joy in being freed from her sick body. My heart is with you, Lil E, and the rest of your family. <3


I think it's part of the human condition to feel relief when a loved one is out of pain, but also feel incredibly sad about missing them at the same time. I didn't go through the process of watching a dear one die until last year at age 48. It was amazing and I was glad I could be there. Lil E will be the richer for having experienced it by your side.


Jess I'm so sorry! This is so hard, please know that we are praying for all of you and most of all for peace for your grandma. Find comfort in Lil E's hugs and his sweetness. Grandma Alice will always be with you. Hugs to your mom, too!

    That's me. I'm a single mama in the city who is an editor, writer and social media host. I wear inappropriately high heels to the playground and know too much about light sabers.
