Goodbye, Grandma

No matter how long you would have been here, it would never have been long enough. I can't imagine what life is going to be like without you. You were my friend, my confidante, my inspiration, my teacher, my advisor. I'm going to miss you more that you will ever know. I have dreaded this day for years, and as much as I am hurting, I know that you are with Grandpa celebrating your return home. It is also a comfort to know that our last words to each other were "I love you." I know how physically difficult it was for you to say those words, but somehow you were able to gather the strength to say them well enough to be understood, but even if I couldn't understand them, I would have known. I'm going to miss you so much. I don't know how to say goodbye forever.
