This is very much worth doing. My grandmother passed away this year and I work in Wisconsin. I visited her when she was close to death, and it was nice to see her and let her know that I love her and that when she was ready to go, it was okay. R.I.P. Ama. Wo Ai Ni.
Over Thanksgiving, I visited her grave. She was cremated and is resting in peace in this lovely little garden in Colma, Calif. 5 years ago
So we’re back from Cyprus and from having visited Grandma. It was wonderful to introduce her youngest great-grandson and for my boy to meet his last surviving relative in that generation.
Grandma has severe Alzheimers and I was prepared for a fairly depressing visit. But she can sit and just smile an incredibly warm, radiant smile which is full of unconditional love. I could have sat there with her for hours. The home she is in is very warm and caring. The staff seem very motivated and provide great care.
we also visited my grandfathers grave while we were there. 5 years ago
We’re flying next week. It’s wonderful that my boy will get a chance to visit his last remaining great grandparent. 5 years ago
Since my son was born (just a few weeks after my other grandma passed away), I’ve been thinking more about this goal with the revised plan of taking my son with me to meet his last surviving great grandma. In November my wife is going on a 5 day course, so I’m looking into hooking up with my Dad and flying to Cyprus where my grandma lives and taking my son with me.
So the goal now is for all four generations to meet up together. 5 years ago
I really wanna visit my Gma oneday, may in the school break i can make the trip, IF IM NOT TOO CONSUMED IN SITTING ON MY ASS. Shes very healthy and goes to the gym still shes just about to turn 74 and everytime i thkn of her passing on, i start to tear up, shes the greatest grandma, gwoing up shes always bring my brothers and i lollies (still does!) and she keeps saying, “My time is almost up, its getting closer” its really sad :( so i wanna see her 5 years ago
One of my grandmothers died two days ago. I didn’t get a chance to visit her and won’t be able to attend the funeral due to being in another country and expecting a baby literally any day now. It’s a shame, but she wouldn’t have know who I was anyway.
Now the goal is to visit my remaining grandmother (in Cyprus) during the coming year. 6 years ago
