RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
My grandmother died on New Year's Eve...ugh. It's been .....not even sure of the words to describe it. I was close to her.
Makes all the other first world problems I'm going through seem moot.

Be true to yourself. Heart

I am sorry for you and your family's loss.

Wow. I'm really sorry to hear that Deidre. Sad

Unfortunately I can't give you a real hug, because a hug is a hug, but here's a virtual one. Hug

thanks everyone. she was one of those people whom you feel the world is a worse place, after she left. however, another way to view that is it's a better place since she lived in it. Heart

I miss her.

Be true to yourself. Heart

There is little one could ask as a postscript for one's life, but to have someone, somewhere say something like that about their passing. There is no better eulogy.

I used to be a hospice volunteer and I remember one night this elderly guy was on the way down for the count. He was propped up in bed, mostly oblivious to the loving family around him, keeping watch, showering him with love, and reminiscing with much laughter about a life well-lived. It was one of those times I was superfluous; there was nothing I could add. They actually invited me in to join them for pizza.

I don't think that's going to be my deathbed scene but your grandma sounds like one of the lucky ones. Be glad that you loved her so well, Deidre.
