    Just a last update that my grandmother took her last breath at 2:15pm today. We are just in the midst of calling everybody we can think of to let them know.

    RIP Nanny, we love you and miss you

    She is in no more pain, and she lived a good long life full of people she loved and who loved her back. I hope folks can say that about me someday.

    Rest peacefully Nanny

    Thanks guys. Acoop that is exactly what is keeping us going, we know she can now relax peacefully. They got in cd players today and we played her some Johnny Cash, apparently that is what she was waiting for -- some music to peacefully go to.

    It is funny in a way, she did not play by the rules LOL my cousin told her last night that she could either go before midnight yesterday, or after midnight tomorrow, as today is my sister's birthday and tomorrow is my cousins. LOL

    Thanks again guys, just getting home now. She passed while sleeping and listening to "leaving on a jet plane". She cleared her voice, then there was no noises for 5 minutes after that, so we went to get a nurse at 2:15pm, she was pronounced dead by the doctor at 2:40pm.

    I have not cried yet, I think I am still in shock. I am sure it will hit me at some point tonight, but as for now. I am joining Allie and Matt and their friend out at the pub tonight for some drinks <3 They always know how to make it better :p

    Jess . . . (((((((((HUGS))))))))) I called my maternal grandmother Nanny. She got to pass peacefully like your Nanny. It didn't hit me full force and I didn't do that heartbroken weeping until the funeral, when they started lowering her casket and we had to leave . . . (((((((((MORE HUGS))))))))
