I’ve managed to make it so far in life without losing a family member, so I don’t really know how to feel about this. My Nan went into hospital around a week ago, and had been improving a little. But my parents rang yesterday to say she had passed away. It’s not a huge surprise, as she was 89. My husband came home from work yesterday when he heard, and I was upset when he got back and was nice to me, but after that it was a relatively normal day. We still talked and laughed like normal. I just have an underlying sad, while life continues as normal. We’re living around 3 hours drive from my family, so we’re almost removed from the situation. Planning on going back in a few days when we know more about what’s going on, and I think I’ll feel worse once I’m around people who knew her. Thanks if you read this, just needed to say something.

Oh my goodness – big hugs! It’s so tough losing a family member at any age! 🙁
I’d be totally inconsolable, I have lost both my Grandads and my Uncle and I cried for days over all of them.
The underlying sad is the worst bit – you really need to let it out. Apart from that, time heals all wounds as the saying goes

I am sorry for your loss. It is always difficult when someone like a Grandparent dies, because although it is sad, it isn’t terrible tragic if they have managed to live a long and healthy life until this point. I am sorry for your loss and just wanted to say don’t feel bad that if amongst the sadness of the situation you are still managing to function as normal. It doesn’t make you a bad person.

Really sorry for your loss. Be kind to yourself. The only thing I’ve found to be true is that there is no right or wrong way to feel. Hugs.

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you made it home to spend time with your family, grieving the loss of your grandmother and cherishing her memory.
