In the midst of the gloom, depression, and frustrations that I feel, is this precious little person, my only Granddaughter, Maddy. I am convinced that she is here to help me through the pain in my life. She was born out of wedlock and now she and her Mom live with us, as well as my other 2 remaining adult children. No matter how sad or frustrated I get, Maddy comes in with that "Hi Mammy" and the pain turns to a focus on this precious little girl. She is no angel. She can literally through attitude but she has so much love for me. Something that I don't really feel from the rest of my family. I'm dreading the day that they get their own place and she isn't here to cheer me up. I love her so, so, much as I'm sure everyone with grandchildren feels. A really big sparkle of joy in my life.

Dear Damions grandma,

I am so sorry for your loss. Iknow and feel your pain. When people tell me "be glad you never really got to know your grandchildren because they were infants", I tell them death at any age is devasting and the love and joy you have for grandchildren do not know age boundaries.
