The very purpose of our life is happiness, the very motion of our lives is toward happiness.
-His holiness the Dalai Lama

My gramma died on Friday morning. She was almost 96. Last time I saw her, she told me about the dogs that the volunteers brought to the hospital for the patients with a smile on her face. Last time I talked to her, she was crying in pain. Friday morning, not even morphine was helping. She wasn't happy anymore & nothing could change that. Today's one of those days I hope she was right & that there is a heaven.

I'm very sorry to hear that. I wish the best for you and your family.

I'm not a Christian but I do believe that there is a better place and I think she's there right now.

I'm sorry for your loss. I hope she lead a happy and fulfilling life. It's good that at least you got to spend time with her and have fond memories by which to honor her memory.

i know words don't usually help, but i do give my condolences.

that story makes me feel like the time i brought cockroach to an old folks' home was really meaningful. maybe we could do something like that together sometime.

hey u - nothing seems like it has a point to it when you see someone you love in pain.

but hopefully when you think of all the other times when she was smiling you realise there is.
