Goodbye Grandma

Mes cheris, I had a bit of a difficult day yesterday. On top of working 10-14 hour days, feeling exhausted but making it through, all in the name of New York Fashion Week, I found out that my wonderful Grandma had passed away. The news of her brain tumor hit my family out of nowhere last month, and now in a whirlwind of only 4 weeks she is now in heaven. Saying goodbye grandma is not something I was prepared to do.

Here is my Grandma and Grandpa when they were just dating in Brooklyn. I just love the classic style in this picture. My Grandpa died when I was 6 of colon cancer and almost a couple decades later my Grandma finally gets to join her sweetheart again in Heaven. My mother kept me up to date of her progress and said she was at peace, surrounded by her children, and ready to move into her mansion in Heaven.

My Grandma was a wonderful, encouraging woman that left every room exuberantly more happy than when she entered it. She always made you feel like a million bucks and gave you the confidence and support to pursue your wildest dreams beyond your greatest realm of imagination. I was so fortunate to have such a strong, loving Christian woman in my life as the matriarch of our family.

Goodbye Grandma, 
I love you so much and miss you greatly.

Thinking of you. It's never easy to lose a loved one even if they were sick or in pain.. we selfishly want to keep them here with us. I'm sure she was so proud to have you as a granddaughter and she'll be watching over you from above, sharing in your success and giving you strength through her memory during the tough times.
Big hugs..xx

I'm thinking of you and your family Jessica. It's never easy to say goodbye but you'll be together again, and imagine all the stories you'll share again one day. I love the sweet note that your grandma is now with her sweetheart again. So positive! Love you and you're in my prayers!
