    While I'm so very thankful for the RAKs we have received for my grandmother... Unfortunately I do not think she will be able to enjoy them she keeps her eyes closed most of the time now, and is growing very weak... My grandad says you can barely understand what she says now.

    Please know though, if you do wish to send things, I will at least be sharing them with my daughter, who I'm sure they will still bring a lot of cheer to. She is only 6, and this is the first time She's had too face this...

    Thanks again!

    I just wanted to update everyone that my step grandmother passed away this morning about 8:30..

    Please keep us in prayer, as I tell my daughter, and as my granddad buries his second wife...

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you all so very much. I will be sharing the art we have received with some of her special family members.

    If anyone would like to continue sending things, I will pass them along to my daughter. This is her first loss, and I know she could use the cheer.

    I don't know if this helps or not.
    Art is therapeutic for me. It calms me down and has helped me during some rough spots.

    I know your daughter is an artist because I have some of her art.
    Maybe it would be helpful for her to make something pretty in memory of Grandma.
    Maybe decorate a paper heart that she can hang on the tree or put on the refrigerator.
    Just a thought.
    Think of you at this sad time.

    I know your daughter is an artist too, so she could make a Memory book of the cards for your Grandma. Then she could share it with your Grandfather and they could talk about her. It would help ease her loss.

    Thank you for checking in on us julia! ❤
    Everyone is actually seeming to do ok for the most part... Every now and then she will get sad but for the most part, she's fairing well.
    Granddad seems to be good, other than being by himsself a lot and worrying about money etc.
