Remembering Grandma

Today is the one year anniversary of my grandma's death. I can't believe it has already been a year. I posted about her here.
My aunt sent me a nice email this morning with a quote I really liked.

"Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away in the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I and you are you, and the old life that was lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged., Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name, speak of me in the easy way which you always did., put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow., Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word it was. let it be spoken without an effort without the ghost of a shadow upon it. life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner, All is well."

I love you Grandma.
