Dear David, Jessica, John and Jaden,
I am so deeply sorry to hear of Betty's passing, my heart aches for all of you.
Betty was such a kind, caring woman, Bill and I always liked her (along with you David). She had a personality and quality about her that you couldn't help but enjoy being in her company.
David, I know how it feels to lose your spouse, Bill passed away 13 1/2 months ago. It's incredibly hard, it's almost unbelievable to think they are really gone. Thank goodness you have Jessica, her husband and your beautiful grandson to stand by your side. It's also hard to be there for your family, but they will give you reason to get up each day.
Jessica, I can't imagine how you feel, you and your mom were always so close, she gave you all the tools you need to live a productive, happy life with your family. After a time you won't cry as much believe it or not, remember that your little boy's not going to understand and will want his Nana. Remind him that she will forever be in his heart and she can watch him from heaven, hopefully that will give him comfort that she didn't abandon him.
John, I don't know you, but always be kind to Jessica and Jaden, they need your strength now and patience, no matter how hard it may be at times. Listen, you cannot fix this, but you can just LISTEN.
I gather she passed away from lung cancer, horrible disease. She was a wonderful Nana to my precious Skye and I will be forever grateful that I got to know her. I pray for all of your family durng this dreadful and exhausting time. Big hugs to each of you.
