Another Unhappy Post

I can't believe I'm writing another bad news post.



Sadly my dear Grandma died yesterday. It was unexpected and came as a real shock. I'm now on the train to Oxford to be with my family for a couple of days.



So I expect I shall be quiet (even quieter than I've been recently) but I'll be back soon. Lately it seems that just as I pick myself up after one bad thing something else rubbish comes along and knocks me over again.



There won't be any Freshly Baked Beads on Wednesday but please feel free to place bead and PDF orders as usual.



See you soon

Laura,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Five years ago my Mom and Grandmother died (six weeks apart). It's very hard to go through. Losing a loved one is so sad for us.
Enjoy this time with family, it does get easier.
Hugs

So sorry for your loss. as you pass through the five stages of grief my thoughts and prayers are with you. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. My father passed away several years ago. I was ready to accept his death. His time had come. But, I'm not sure I will ever stop being angry about the unacceptable nursing care he received in his final hours. May he rest in peace. May your grandmother rest in peace. May you and your family find comfort in fond memories you shared with her.

Laura, I'm so sorry. You'll be in my thoughts. Try to enjoy some fond memories of your grandmother when she was vibrant, and perhaps they'll comfort you. ((hugs))

So sorry to hear this Laura - so very often things like this happen in clumps so we don't get a chance to get over one before another happens.
Hugs,

So soon after your other recent losses, this is an awful blow. It feels inadequate just to leave a few words here but I leave some (even though I don't really know what to say that will help) in the hope that you'll draw strength from the many messages of sympathy that you will receive here.

My sincerest condolences to you and the rest of your family.
