RIP Gramma, You Bird Gerhl by SilentKW RIP Gramma, You Bird Gerhl by SilentKW
Bird Gehrl

I am a bird girl now
I've got my heart
Here in my hands now
I've been searching
For my wings some time
I'm gonna be born
Into soon the sky
'Cause I'm a bird girl
And the bird girls go to heaven
I'm a bird girl
And the bird girls can fly
Bird girls can fly

- Antony and the Johnsons

========================================

This is a sketch I did last xmas in my sketchbook of my Great-Grandma playing with my baby cousin. She passed away Friday night. She would be 93 tomorrow. I feel....I dont know how I feel really..... She was my last Great-Grandparent, out of the 6 I got to meet in my life. I'll miss her lots, that tough old bird....our bird gerhl.

"Gramma, thats a man, not a woman"

"Gramma, we don't call ppl those things anymore"

"Gramma, he is 70yrs too young for you"

"Gramma, I don't want to explain to you how that works"

"I don't feel comfortable telling you this, I'll just order you MTV instead"

"Gramma, you can't grab his ass and blame it on your eyesight"

....many good times.

i know what you're talking about, my grandpa passed away when i was 12 and i still can't believe he's really gone
your grandma lived a very long life, more than most people, not all of people get to see their great-grandsons! i can only imagine living long enough
i know it's a cliche but she is in a better place now, free of pain and sorrow. she's out there watching you, and i'm sure she's happy to know you miss her

Haha, she sounds like she was an awesome person. Especially the last quote. I love old people like that, and I'm sad when one more of them leaves us.

<3 Hope you and your family are handling this well.
