My Grandmama passed away yesterday afternoon and I am heartbroken. I am so sad and joyful at the same time, mostly sad though. I am joyful that she is not suffering anymore, she has been sick for a very long time, it is just so hard to let the people you love go. In honor of Grandmama, one of the most amazing people EVER, I am going to celebrate her life.

She was the most beautiful Grandmama in the WHOLE world, I think she was prettier than me at my wedding.

She drops f bombs, says titties and says whatever is on her mind. 

She was a mother at 15 and was a grandmother at 35. No wonder she was so hip and with it!

She LOVED Elvis. She saw him in concert, on the front row and got one of his scarfs!

She was married 4 times, never widowed, and each one of them loved her until the day they died.
She instilled in us the importance of family. There will be a huge hole in our family now, she was the center, that will NEVER be replaced.

She cut hair my whole life. She owned a shop in Covington, Peggy's Coiffures, and she cut my hair- and permed it.

I love her so much and am so sad that she is gone. I am so glad that she got to know Chad over the past 4 years but still ache knowing she will never know my children. My heart is broken right now, as is my whole family's, I hope we can celebrate the amazing life she had in a way that will honor her like she deserves.

i am so sorry for your loss.
I lost my own grandmother shortly before I married.
I wanted her to be at my wedding so badly.
It sounds like you had a special friend and person in your grandmother.
Know that there is one more person watching over you and she will know your children through what you tell them of her.

i am so sorry for your loss, allison. i lost my mother at a young age, and in becoming a mother this year, i miss her all the more.

i am sure that you are enough like your grandmother that you will live your life in a way that honors her...and no matter what, she will be looking down on you, your children, and your grandchildren.

So sorry to hear this news. However, your grandmother is a place far better then we are even able to imagine. I am praying for you and your family!

She is proud of you, and will be watching you everyday from here on out. She will know your children. She is with you.
