This month it will be two years that my grandmother passed away. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of her. I can honestly say my grandmother was one of my closest friends and her passing has left a big void in my heart. My grandmother was 93 years old when she passed away. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and as her disease progressed my love for her grew even more. I felt the need to protect her. Truthfully, I am not sure if she ever realized the impact she had on me but I do know that the bond we shared was mutual.
