To the world’s best Grandma.
You were, you are and you will be alive because only your body left. Your spirit is still here. You are not dead. You Are Here. I know it because I can feel you close to me, watching me in my daily life, being upset with my problems and being glad with my happiness, as when I had you by my side.
You gave me everything. You taught me what compassion and selfless love mean, to give and not to take, to have mercy and not to criticize. You stood by me in my most difficult moments. You didn’t give, you imparted power to me. You transformed me from a weak child into a strong woman, full of confidence that she can do and achieve anything. You vanished every fear I had inside me. You broaden my horizons and opened my mind. If I did not have you in my life, I would have been nothing.
My Grandmother, I tried to save you with all my power. I fought like a mad dog, and I nearly succeeded.
I held your hand in the hospital and your last words were “ I’m afraid.” and I told you “Do not be afraid. I’m here! “
And I mean it Grandma! I’m still here and I will not give up!
I am not saying goodbye because I know that this is not the goodbye!
Somehow we will be together again.
Until then, I dedicate this website to you. I want the world to see you and learn how Wonderful and Fair person you are.
It’s the least I can do for you.
I love you Grandma I adore you …

It’s been a year ago since you flew away but I feel like only a day has passed. People say that time is a healer. It certainly hasn’t been a healer to me. The pain is the same, the grief is the same, the tears are the same. Only the sense of loss isn’t the same. It’s bigger. Because as time passes by, I became more and more conscious of the lack of your voice, the lack of your being, the lack of YOU. I miss you so much that it’s almost unbearable.
Your grandmother was, is and wiil be the world’s best grandma! There is a strong and unique bond between your grandma and you that no person has ever experienced!
I know it is hard not to see her, not to be able to hug and kiss her and not to ask for her advice. Remember that she helped you become an incredible woman and she is proud of you! A part of her lives inside you. I am sure that she is watching you wherever she is.
You come from a very loving family. You truly love each other and do everything within your power to help your family members, to make them happy, to protect them and to bring out the best in them.
One thing is for sure, your grandma is an example to follow!!!
Today, 9th December is your Name Day.
I wish you were here.
I wish I had the opportunity to make a party with relatives for you, to give you a present and give you a kiss and a big hug.
But now the only real wish I can think of is for you to still exist somewhere and you can see and hear me.
Happy Name Day Grandma.
I am so touched by your dedication. I wish she was living and you were happy together. It’s too bad to lose someone you love … Why is this? … Wherever she is now, she is watching and loving you. This is not enough of course. But I know all of us will meet again all of us who have left usour beloveds persons and will never LOSE them again and we will be happy! Also think about what is written on the website: “Our beloveds only die when we forget them.” So right!
I am sorry for the unfair loss of your grandmother. When you love someone so much, the pain of the separation is unbearable and endless. You should be brave and I hope that time will ease your pain until you meet her again and you will be able to hug and kiss her.
