She departed

She is gone.

I’m out of words.

What kind of emotions and feelings am I supposed to have now that she has departed?

Good people keep leaving us sooner than we would like, but why?

I don’t know, and I’m not looking for the answer. In fact, I don’t even want to know.

There might be a good reason.

All I can feel right now is a sense of gratefulness. Because I got to know grandma and spent enough time hanging out with her to remember her smile, honesty, care, and optimism. She was fun, often smiling, always sincere with her words, and forever cooking some of the best meals I’ve had.

She was my favorite grandma.

I’m also grateful that my parents got to spend months with her before she departed.

I will always remember her laugh and how much she cared about us.

Wherever you are, you are in a better place now.

Rest in peace.
