Grandmother just died

Post by Darth Yan » 2020-03-18 05:21pm

So it finally happened. My last grandparent died at about noon. She was 98 years old and by all accounts it was peaceful (she ordered lunch and when they went to give it to her she was dead.)

I feel like the last link to my childhood is gone

Very sorry for your loss but 98 is a pretty good run and at least it appears to have been peaceful.

My condolences. I'm glad that at the end it was quick and peaceful.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
It's no use debating a moron; they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Just because you have the attention span of a fruit fly doesn't mean the rest of us are so encumbered.

My sympathies for your loss. Nothing we can say will fill the void.
They say, "the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots." I suppose it never occurred to them that they are the tyrants, not the patriots. Those weapons are not being used to fight some kind of tyranny; they are bringing them to an event where people are getting together to talk. -Mike Wong

But as far as board culture in general, I do think that young male overaggression is a contributing factor to the general atmosphere of hostility. It's not SOS and the Mess throwing hand grenades all over the forum- Red

My condolences.
Please do not make Americans fight giant monsters.

Those gun nuts do not understand the meaning of "overkill," and will simply use weapon after weapon of mass destruction (WMD) until the monster is dead, or until they run out of weapons.

They have more WMD than there are monsters for us to fight. (More insanity here.)

I have lost all my grandparents and one step grandfather. My Mothers Mothers, the last to die, was the hardest. She helped me when I was in a very bad place. I recall a thought that came to me when I looked at her face for the last time that might be comforting.

I saw her life in my mind as being like a stone tossed in a pond all the things she did for me and other people were ripples traveling out. That she wasn't truly gone from this world so long as the lives she touched kept going on. That if my own ripples traveled out and helped others the way she helped me and then someone I helped did the same she never would be.

I hope that brings you some comfort. I wish you well in overcoming this loss.

Sorry for your loss, Yan.
I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season."

I'm sorry. Remember the good times when you can, and know that you were a significant part of her life.
