    I just found out this morning from my aunt that my Great-Grandmother is in the hospital and she isn't doing to well. I know that doesn't mean she's passed on just yet but i'm preparing myself for it. Just to give you guys a little history. This wonderful lady has taken care of and raised pretty much my whole family (my dad's side of my family) and this side of my family is not small. she had 6 girls herself, one of which is my grandmother, and has out lived 3 of her own children (9 kids total) and her kids on average have 4 kids, and thier kids have on average 3 kids and i'm old enough to start my family now. I was just praying my kids would get to meet the woman who raised me and who is the backbone to my family. If only you guys knew what she means to all of us (about 100 people of immediate family) you guys can embrace the pain with me. I know there's been a couple people on here who have had reletives pass away but i haven't had one pass away that i was this close to. it really hasn't hit me yet but only time will tell. it's the weekend guys and i would hate to hear that one of you got hurt or killed over a dumb ass race or something. now i'm just rambling and i'll you you guys later.

    Yeah, man your pain is felt, remember she will always hold a place in your heart and that place will be overloaded with good warm memories so in your heart she will always be there. I will be sure to put my hands together for you.

    same here. sorry if shes passes. I hope she lives longer. Stay strong and remember that it has to happen. I lost my grandfather a couple months ago. He was in Mexico and i didn't even say goodbye. Worst of all neither did his son........my dad. :( but we have to keep chugging along. its life :unsure:

    peace
