My grandmother recently passed away. It was rather sudden. We weren't expecting it, but she had been sick with a cold for a few weeks. While I am sad, and I will miss her; I cannot complain or wish her back. Nana is now in a better place and is reunited with my grandfather, Tata. I know I'll see them both again one day!
While it was for a sad reason, it was really nice to get the family together. I haven't seen everyone in years! The last time I saw my second cousins; M was in 1st grade, and he's now in 4th grade!
Nana and Tata's house is full of fond, childhood memories. We drove down from VA two to three times a year. Christmas, Spring Break, and Summertime. I went around taking some photos of some key places and items that I want to remember.
My dad's mother, Mama Ruth, is now my only surviving grandparent. Thankfully, I was able to visit her after the funeral. The weekend trip to SC made me realize how grateful I am for my family and that they are close!
