My Grandma

As many already know my dear Grandma Compton passed away on September 25, 2010 at 1:20pm. She was very very sick and as much as I didnt want to loose her I was thankful she was freed of her pain and suffering. I had a really hard time with her death. I dont think I was really as prepared for her passing as I thought I was. Since I knew she was so sick and we had gone to visit her in July I thought I had prepped myself as best I could but no matter what you think I dont think your ever ready to let someone you love go. I know she was so happy to be reunited with her parents and sister on the other side. One of things I have a hard time with is that she will never know my future children and she wont be able to watch all of my children grow up. But really since she lived so far away and was unable to travel she didnt see them at all now so truely now she will be able to see them all the time and watch me and my family as we grow and change. I love my Grandma so much, she was the best Grandma anyone could ask for! I cant wait to see her again someday.

My Grandma, Lillie Deaton Wilkerson Compton. This photo was taken while she was in highschool.

This was the last time I saw my Grandma alive. We were able to go see her in Indiana in July. I wish I had really realized this was my last time with her alive. I would have hugged her more and told her I loved her more times.
