    My grandmother died this morning. About 10:30 this morning. She had pneumonia (however you spell it). She had been struggling to breath for the past few days, and finally passed on this morning. She had her eyes open most of the time, but we don't think she really knew what was going on. I'm glad she wasn't suffering any more. She was a very strong woman. Wouldn't take crap off of anybody till the day she died. Raised 7 kids just about by herself. My grandfather died when my mom was a teenager I believe. Supposely she interviewed the 3 Stooges when she was a teenager for a theater she worked at. Her father died when a bridge collapsed in Pittsburgh when she was an infant.

    We're about to leave to go meet with the rest of my family. Not sure where they're going to be, nursing home, funeral home, or my parents house. Hopefully find out soon.

    Sorry, I'm rambling.:(

    Sounds like a great lady....I'm a HUGE 3 Stooges fan so I would've loved to have seen/heard that interview.

    My condolences on your loss.

    I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I wish you and your family the best. I hope that in time, everyone of you can carry on.

    I remember when my great grandmother died, she suffered something awful. She was in a home with an impacted bowel, and they did absolutely nothing. She cried and rolled back and forth in her bed, and held her stomach begging for help and the nurses just walked on by.

    I just hope and pray someone shows them mercy, God knows they don't deserve it.

    The funeral was on Saturday. She was suppose to be buried today, because my aunt and uncle wanted to save $100. They said they would get charged more if they buried her on the weekend.

    Even better was the preacher they got to do the service. I won't say what religion because I don't want to start a debate. But this guy did the most ignorant and disrespectful thing I have ever seen.

    First, he didn't even take his coat off. Then, he rushed thru the service. Any faster and I would have thought he was the guy who does Blur's voice from TF:TM. Didn't mention anything about my grandma, about her life or anything. Just read from his book. Since my aunt and uncle didn't want to have her buried on Saturday, they had him do the graveside service that he would usually do, there at the funeral home. He did both parts in probably less than 10 minutes. When he was done, he walked out, got in his car, and drove away. I've never seen anything like it.

    Sorry to hear about your grandma too, hopefully the service for yours is more respectful than the one for mine.
