Circle of Life

My whole life I've had 3 sets of grandparents. My father's parents got divorced, and both remarried when my dad was still little. I always had a strong bond with all of them, as my parents frequently let me stay over. My maternal grandparents were perhaps the most involved in our life. My Grandmother passed away today. She has been sick for the past couple of years, and her body finally had had enough. I am saddened to think I won't have to opportunity to see her again in this life, but at the same time rejoice to think I will see her again at some point. I also lost my grandma several years ago, and 2 of my grandpas last year, so now I only have 2 grandparents left. I am just glad that I had the privilege to know all of them, and happy to be able to spend some more (phone) time with the ones I still have.

How great is it that we were lucky enough to be able to go over there a few months ago to see her before she passed? I mean really, we knew it was a likely possibility, and it just makes so much more sense to go over there to see her while she was still alive.
