I just wanted to offer thanks to those of you who supported me when I started chatting on OOC again and reported that my beloved grandmother was passing.
She did indeed pass a few days ago. With help, I managed to get out of bed for long enough to attend the funeral. I'm not religious, but it was a beautiful graveside service I think she would've been happy with.
I took the loss of my grandmother very hard and did some foolish things because of it (which is why I am presently banned), but I think I'm through the grieving process. Without any friends in the flesh and blood, your care and kind words the night before and on the morning of her death consoled me a great deal.
Thanks very much,
