the greatest lady i've ever known

my southern charm filled, deeply loving, incredibly generous, always fun and unconditionally supportive grandmother passed away yesterday. she was classy and vivacious. she had a clear and natural comfort with herself and everyone else. she loved and lived and gived to its fullest. i admire everything about her. the earth was honored to have her old soul in it and won't ever be the same now that she is gone.

My darling,

You are the flowering bud as she was the flower. How lucky that she was in your life for many years. I'm sure you get your sweet ways from her. My thoughts are with you and your family.

big hugs and kisses.

So terribly sorry to hear this. She looks (and sounds, from everything you've written about her before) like one very special woman. I expect you have inherited her charm. Thank you for sharing her story. Sending a big hug across the miles. xoxox

I am so sorry to hear about your loss...I just stumbled across your blog today, and the picture of her is what grabbed my eye, to make me look at more...until I read what the post said, then I felt bad. But she's in peace now...and forever an angel looking over you. Keep up the great posts, I'm sure she'll be there trying to help keep you inspired by beautiful things.

God Bless...

Dear Anjie,

I know from what you have shared with me about how close your family is, that this is a big loss. I am so sorry for you all and I will keep you in my thoughts in the days to come. I hope each passing day gets easier and brings you peace.

hey there...big hug for you and your family.
My gran died a few years back but you know she never feels far away to me. I think your special bond will keep her close.
Again big hug.

So sorry for this news. My grandmother was very special to me also. VERY. But, she's always in my heart, and you'll still have her spirit with you, and in you, forever. Take care.
