Out of Town this Weekend

Postby spooky girlfriend » Fri Nov 30, 2007 9:06 am

Doc and I will be headed out of town until Sunday evening to attend my grandmother's funeral. I know I am quite old to still have a living grandparent, and I knew this was coming, but somehow I still find myself unprepared. She was my last grandparent and it just feels strange.

Please be on good behavior until we return. I might be able to log in from the hotel, but I'm not sure - it's a dink country town and I don't know for sure that they have heard of the internet yet. :wink:

My condolences Spooky. I have one grandparent remaining (she's 92!) and am certainly not looking forward to losing her one day. A loss is a loss, regardless of the person's age or anything else. Best wishes to your family.

Ditto spooky.

We lost my grandad-in-law (if there is such a thing) soon after our daughter was born. He was 89. We were all pleased that he got to see his seventh great-grandaughter and I know he was thrilled about it too.

My condolences.

All the words of love seem cruel and crass

My sincere condolences to you Spookys. I lost my last grandparent in '96. I still miss my sainted grandmother. :cry:

Very sorry for your loss.
This morning you've got time for a hot, home-cooked breakfast! Delicious and piping hot in only 3 microwave minutes.

My condolences. I still miss my grandmother, the only grandparent I had.
Why don't you write about it in your blag?

Thanks, everyone.

We're back, and I'm exhausted. Gotta love my grandmother. She had buried two husbands, was 86 years old, and still died with a "boyfriend" that loved her more than life. It's impressive that she was 86 and still had men worship her like that. She was a unique woman.

I was doing pretty good until I heard "Please Come Home for Christmas" this morning. . . .
