My Dearest Pet Loss Family,
I need help in dealing with an upcoming loss ~ my grandmother is getting ready to die.
Don't have a lot of emotional strength right now.  Depleted from so many other losses.
Nanny is my mom's mom.  My own mother passed away 16 years ago this Christimas Day.

I do take comfort in their reunion.

Nan was never a big  pet lover, but she is the reason I inherited my beloved Lil' Red, and I was forever changed by that precious boy.
The two year anniversary of Ceci's passing is only one week away.  I am already trying to process this upcoming anniversary, and now I am on death watch ~ 166 miles away ~ from my grandmother.
Don't even have any money on my stupid Pay As You Go phone to get word when she does indeed die.  Will be running to K-Mart computers and the library for updates.  Maybe that is better since I have to work all weekend at my second  job.
Blessins to All,
Ceci's Mom (Robin) and Mama to Lil' Red, my precious boy
                                                                          and The Pinny Gig


Ceci and Me

Dear Robin,
This is very sad news indeed about your Grandmother. Sometimes it feels like life just seems to knock us back just when we start to try to lift ourselves up. You have been through so much sadness, Your Nanny will be safe she will be with her daughter, hold on to that thought. What a lovely memory that she is the reason you got Lil'Red.
I don't come so much to the message boards, as you may remember my own beloved Mother died in May. My heart is very heavy and I miss her so much. But I saw your message about your Nanny and I felt I wanted to tell you that I am thinking of you. You have my private email if you want to write me anytime.

Thank you, Family, for All of Your Love and Support


 ~ Nanny passed away this morning after 99 years and 16 days of Life on this Earth ~


I felt your prayers, and they gave me strength to get through this difficult weekend.


Right now, I think I am on automatic pilot and am too tired to fully comprehend my grief.


~ I will return here soon to seek support for this loss

 and the upcoming two year anniversary of my beloved Ceci Girl's passing ~


 ~ Goodnight, Friends ~

I'm sorry for your loss, Robin. It seems your grandmother lived a long life and I'm guessing a fruitful one. She gave you life through your mother, and love through Lil' Red and that's something to praise :)

A hug through the miles and the ocean.

    My heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your grandmother.  I have asked God to shield you from any pain and suffering.  You are so strong and you have been through so very much.  Your grandmother lived a very long life and I'm certain that she is with your mother right now in Heaven.  They are both watching over you Robin and always will.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.  God Bless you.  Please take care of yourself and come back here soon so you can receive more love and support.
                               Sleep peacefully,

Hello Robin,

     I am so sorry to here about your loss. It seems that as soon as you turn one corner another ordeal seems to come at you. I hope that you find the strength to help you through it.
     I am not sure that if you are aware that I have not been on Pet Loss as much. Jerry Copple helped me so much to find that Inner Peace which took me to almost to the end of May. It has taken me this long to deal with my dog Gizmo's loss. Jerry's passing in June has left me saddened because he has helped me and others so very much. I do find it ironic that he died on the same day as his Pokey's Anniversary.
     I do hope that you had enough time to share with your grandmother. My grandmother has been in a nursing home for about 10 years. This year we noticed that she was beginning to fade and near the end of July of this year she stopped eating. I prayed to GOD to allow me to see her that upcoming weekend in which I was able to drive down to her twice which including Sunday. She died that monday and I was so glad that I saw her. You mentioned that you would do it all over again. That is what Jerry and I talked about with my Gizmo and his Noah and Peaches. Robin, life is indeed precious and sometimes things happen. Even though I may not be on Pet Loss as much I do look for people like you who have helped me so much. I remember how devastated I was when I first came to this site. Then I was able to heal by helping others. I see now others are joining the ranks of helping making this site perpetual. As always Robin You remain in my nightly prayers at Gizmo's Grave.    GOD Bless,
