How are the kids?

IC kept on bringing home drawings and artworks created in kindergarten specially for the oma. These things I collect and I told her we would bring them together when we visit oma's grave.

She kept on telling stories of her 'oma encounters' when she's alone. The last time, she said oma asked her to pray for oma and she did.

MC kept on with her continuous quest for answers.

Why couldnt the oma wake up again, isnt it that she's been sleeping and waking up for a long time, why not this time?

Papa said oma's sleeping in the cemetery and Mama said she's already in heaven. (We told her oma's body in the cemetery but her soul is now in heaven.)

Why is it that it took her a long time to decide that she wanted the oma to be the first one to sign on her friendship book, and now, she's gone. Oma left only her signature on it.

Why could we leave the opa alone at home when we didnt do that to oma when opa was in the hospital?

Why could the opa sleep with us when oma didnt only wants to sleep in her own bed?

Sometimes we answer her questions immediately, sometimes we simply told her to ask her questions and the answers would come sooner or later.

It is not easy but we are coping especially since the opa's been released from the hospital late yesterday. Thanks for the prayers.

I don't know what to say, so I said a prayer for you, your hubby, opa and your kids.

Ang hirap but you're right answers will come sooner or later.

Hope Opa's will recover soon! We all have worries in life and just remember that without challenges we cannot be more stronger altogether! Hang on there, big big hug to all !

I think it is really good that your kids are dealing with the loss openly.
My prayers for you and your family.

Hi Raqgold,

I'm sorry to hear the news. Grandparents always have a special place in children's hearts so this must be a bewildering time for your kids. You and your husband are handling their questions gracefully.

I'm sorry for your loss Raq. Every grandparent is special and losing one is always sad.
