        Mine too. I lost my beautiful daughter inlaw, the mother of mygrandson just a while ago and felt a lot of grief as she was wonderful and young. What has comforted me, is to think about her a lot. Especially the good things she did. I try to live those nice things for her. It helps me to feel ok some how. Whatever you do, be kind to yourself. My very best wishes at this dark time in your life.

    I'm so sorry-I know how hard it is to lose a beloved grandmother...

    What a long, and probably very interesting life she must have led, though...

    Do you have any stories to tell about her?  When my grandmother past away, talking about her helped me more than anything.

      She is always advicing my parents not to let me study abroad,she said she want me closer to her always, so if i travel, i would hardly remember her again,and now she's gone!

    She also told me to avoid being promiscious,drunk,high with opium,canabies,cocaine,etc. She advised me to always pray,be honest and outspoken even when everyone is against me,as far as i am on the truth lane,not to cheat others,not to envy,to always help the poor and needy and never to date a married woman.

    She loved America and England so much, but she never wanted me to travel there so that i can be closer to her.

    Wow, 103, that's fantastic!  For my 100th hub, I wrote about "Centenarian's-Living to 100 and Beyond".  Some of you might enjoy it.  I found some stats on it.

    Sorry to read of your loss.  How fortunate you were to have her for so long.  I never met either of my grandmothers.

      I am sorry about that,anyway thanks for your sympathy.

    My sympathies, Acco, but I do hope she was a centenarian rather than a centurion.  That would be a tough job.
