Nathans_sister Posted September 20, 2007 Report Share Posted September 20, 2007 I lost my great-grandmother about 8 weeks after losing my younger brother (age 18). It seems to me that I am still grieving so hard for my little brother, I don't know if I have grieved for my great-grandmother or if I am still yet to grieve for her. On July 8 (the day she died) about 6:30 in the morning we received a phone call from my grandfather telling us that nursing home called him to tell him that my great-grandmother was not doing well and on the way to the nursing which is about 30 minutes from where I live he called back saying that she had passed. The nursing home suspected a heart attack was responsible. About 1pm that afternoon my family went and made arrangements for her funeral. The next day at the visitation my friend who worked at the nursing home told me privately that my great-grandmother had told her nurse that she was going to die that day. I told my dad about it and apparently she had been saying that she was ready to go be with the lord and her husband since he died in 1979. I am not sure if that gave me some sense of peace or if I am still grieving for my little brother and am yet to grieve for my great-grandmother. If anybody could give me some answers that would be great. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
