We could really use your prayers. My grandmother passed away yesterday. It was unexpected and obviously devastating. I wish she could have seen the wedding she was so excited and already had her dress.

@Allyser: This made me cry, too.
I am really feeling for you right now. This is awful news, but I do know she will be with your spirit now and especially on that day. I second the big hugs and you’ll be in my prayers.

Both of my grandparents passed this spring within 6 weeks of each other. I know how you feel. Do know, that she is looking down from heaven on you and is surrounded with love and will be there in spirit that day.
Do like Bakerella said and cry. Grief comes at odd times, and in waves. I still get it to be honest. Be easy on yourself and let yourself have some time to work through it.
Find one small way to honor her too. That’s what I’m doing. We are toasting them, their 70 years together at the reception, and thanking them for helping me become the woman I am today and for my sister becoming the beautiful mom, sister, and wife she is also.
Hugs to you during such a painful time.

Honey, I am praying for you and your family. I know how devistating it is to not have your grandmother at your wedding. I am sure that she will be watching you on your very special day. My grandmother was my only granparent I had growing up and she just passed away… I am going throught this same thing too. Words can’t descibe how much I miss her and want her to be a part of my special day. I know that nothing I say can take your pain away or bring your grandmother back, but know that people are praying for you and are here if you ever need to talk.

FI’s grandmother passed away un-expected the other month, I know what you’re going through. We also had just heard her tell us about how excited she was etc.
Grieve, do what you need to do. If you need to talk, we’re here for you.

Thank you all so much. My parents finally got a flight back into the country from their vacation and i have most the family coming in town by tonight. We have set the funeral for tuesday. But I really appreciate all the prayers I have needed them to stay strong and coordinate as much as I can. Im doing my best not to think about the wedding for a bit because it is so emotional. Thank you all

I am sorry for your loss. I strongly believe that she will be there in spirit. My mom passed on a year ago, one month before my daughter’s wedding (her anniversary is next month) and I definitely beyond a doubt felt my mom (and my dad’s) spirits present at their wedding. I am sure that your grandmother won’t miss it either.

I’m so sorry for your loss. My grandmother passed away 2 1/2 years ago and I still miss her. She helped raise me, she was like a second mother as she lived with me my entire life. I still think about her and know that she will be there with me on my wedding day. We are actually getting married at the same church her funeral was held at and I know that she will be there watching over us. I am happy she was able to meet my FI a few times before she passed. I could tell she really liked him and knowing that she’s happy for me makes this all more right.

I’m so sorry for your loss! My abuela (grandma) passed away last summer, right before we got engaged. She’s definitely someone who I missed not being able to share my good news with. She liked my FI very much and would’ve been sooo excited for us. I plan to honor her at our wedding. Hope you can find a way to honor yours as well.
Take comfort in knowing she’s watching over you and will be there in spirit. My condolences to you and your family!
