I lost my grandmother last year. I'm still grieving, but at 91years she had a good run.

This bit of classic Sesame Street helped me a lot.

I don't think you need to worry.

Grief will come naturally to you. You will be sad, you will miss your grandma, you might even feel some denial.

Try to remember her, remember the good times.

The funeral will be a tear jerker and you will learn a lot about your grandmother that you didn't already know, I'm sure there will be some incredible stuff to admire about her that you wish you had known earlier.

RE: Impending Death
both of my grandpas, my grandmother, and great grandmother have died so far in my life. i just accepted it and moved on, cherishing the memories and remembering them from time to time. strangely enough the only death that caused me to cry was when my dog was put to sleep. i got the news while i was at work and when i got home i cried for about ten minutes. ive never been a very emotional person. always taught myself to just accept things and move on. i figure the reason i cried then was because i saw my dog on a constant basis for ten years and she would no longer be there. every time i came home i was reminded of her and it took a month or so for me to get over the sadness.

RE: Impending Death
My grandmother passed this morning around 2am in the hospital. I ended up sending her flowers in her favorite color before you she died and apparently it really made her happy to see them--and to have gotten them from me. I'm very fluctuant in my emotions right now, both very sad and bittersweet feelings. I'm happy I got to make her smile one more time though.

RE: Impending Death
The period at the end of the sentence helps to give it meaning. Death is no different. How we accommodate it is certainly individual. Myself, when I read, I focus on the sentence and not the period at the end of it; it only tells me where the sentence stops.

It's okay to mourn death, but never forget to celebrate the life.

I'm sorry for your loss. Death is always hardest for those left behind.
