Dear Grandma,
It has been the best 11 years in my whole entire life. Why? Because I spent the last 11 years with you. You have done so much and without you I wouldn't even be here right now saying this to you. Actually I wouldn't even be alive right now. I knew that it was time for you to go and join the rest of our family. God knew that he didn't want us to suffer seeing you suffer. Either way you would have to go to Heaven one way or another. It'll happen to all of us and then we can be reunited and have a big celebration up in Heaven. Today was the day of my last orchestra recital at elementary school and I hoped you enjoyed. You could probably tell or heard that I messed up a little bit. I SOMETIMES messed up but after it happened I got back into it. Without mistakes none of us would be here right now where we are. Also without mistakes we wouldn't make corrections and would still do it over and over again. I hope that I will see you at my "graduation" or closing ceremony is what the teachers call it. I know that you won't literally be there but at least I'll see you spiritually like I always do. I can still remember the good and bad times that we have had. Like when I was very young like I am still, not trying to brag or anything because I'm only 11 but when I was like 4 years old and didn't know as much I got mad for some reason and slammed a door, not on your face though but you made me sit out in a corner where the flower pots were and still are. I know that you had taught us to be kind and caring but it was just that we forgot how important it is to be caring and kind. I wish that I could have actually saw you on April 18th (your birthday which you would already know that) but I guess that God had a very important job for you to do because no matter how hard anything is, you will ALWAYS get to the bottom of it. I still regret the things that I didn't do for you which were BIG mistakes.

Happy birthday grandma! Exactly 77 years ago, you were brought into this world. Unfortunately, 77 years later , you left this world. I love you and know that you will always be there with me to guide me through my life. Rest in peace.

Dear Grandma,
I know your are strong enough to stay the last 4 years and I tried to be brave for you but I couldn't stand the thought of losing you, instead you were the brave one since you felt like you were ready and did your part in the world and in our family. Even though we don't talk much, it doesn't mean I don't love you. You taught us to be independent so that we will be ready and successful on our own when you are gone. I'm gonna miss you so much! I regret the kisses that I didn't give you, but now that I realize that life is short and should be full of loved ones and giving to those in need and family and friends. You have given us so much and in return I hope we have given you more than enough. Deeply inside I wished you could have had enough strength to stay until April 18, 2013 to turn 77. But I guess God had a different plan for you.

Love you forever,

Celena Dang (age 14)

My wife and I are advanced in years and share in a ministry that reaches out to people who have lost loved ones in death. Even though we did not know your loved one, our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. I have worked over 40 years in medicine, working with terminal patients.

One of many things I have learned is humankind has had to come to terms with the terrible reality of death. What a sense of helplessness we experience when someone we love dies!
I cannot imagine what you are going through right now, no one can. For each one of us it is a personal experience. I just want you to know that those memories that hurt now will someday bring you great joy and comfort.

In the words of Kahlil Gibran: “When you are sorrowful look again in your heart and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight; so let today embrace the past with remembrance and the future with longing.”

Our deepest condolences to you and your family,


David R.Trahan
