My Dad's mother is my last living GrandParent, she is 85 and is having Congestive Heart Failure symptoms. My sister says I need to call her, my sister is a nurse and has been keeping an eye on Mamommie since my parents have been out of state traveling. I know death is a part of life, but having grown up with Great Great Grandparents, it is really diffucult to be down to one Grandparent. I hate that I have not been able to get home to see her the last few years, I planned to go home next March for her Birthday. Our family has had a lot of tragedy at this time of year, so it kind of makes it extra hard to deal with. In 96 my Mother's Mom passed away the Day after Christmas, then 3 weeks later my middle Uncle, then exactly 2 years later my oldest Uncle and my Great Uncle the same day. The following year on my dad's Birthday (Jan 16) I lost my son and my Grandmother (Dad's) had a stroke, then that April my mom's father. My dad didn't want to celebrate his Birthday for a couple years after this (both Uncles died 2 days after his birthday). This was actually the first year in a long time I was in the Cristmas Spirit, now I am kinda depressed.
