My nana died two years ago today. As if that wasn't bad enough for my dad, one of his running group, a man he's known for twenty years, also died today. The sad thing is that his death could have been prevented if he'd gone to the doctor a little earlier. But that's the way it is with cancer, isn't it? My nana died of cancer, too.

*hugs* I know all too well how you're feeling, and the only consolation I can offer is that it's an inevitable part of life, and that they're never really gone as long as we carry them in our hearts. Besides, we're all one. *more hugs*

I think the film Kaos (by the brothers Taviani) put it wonderfully. In it (as far as I remember), a young man remembers his grandma, and says that the worst part is knowing that while he'll never forget her, she'll never be able to think about him again. It's been 24 years since I saw it, but that line stuck. Fantastic movie, by the way.

Yes. That is the worst part. I can't talk to her or phone her anymore. I will probably never visit the town she lived in again. I always wonder what my grandma, my mother's mother, would have though of me if she hadn't died when I was 11. I tend to think life might have been much easier... we were alike in many ways.
