    Sorry for your loss Pikachu. Have safe travels and may the time spent with your family bring you peace.

    Pikachou, I'm so sorry for your loss. Treasure every minute you get to spend with your grandfather. I sounds like your grandparents had a long life together. Help your family celebrate your grandmother's long life and be happy she did not have to endure a prolonged period of suffering. Hugs to you. We will miss you when you are away.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Well, my plans got turned all upside down.

    My cousin sent me a message that she and her dad are NOT going to be able to accomodate us as originally planned. I called my dad to get his advice on what I should do and we both agreed that I wouldn't be able to afford a hotel for Tuesday through Saturday + transportation + food. I had checked the Delta Airlines website and they said you had until midnight the day after you bought your tickets to get a refund so I cancelled my flight so my dad could get his money back.

    I'm so disappointed in my cousin and her dad. Really? They don't have a couch we could crash on, an air bed, sleeping bags?? I can't believe with all the family we have in Iowa no one can put us up for a few days.

    Ah, well. That's the way it goes sometimes. I'll remember this if my cousin ever asks ME for anything. And I'm not going to worry about getting her a gift for her baby shower.

    Don't get me wrong. It's not that I feel entitled to stay with them. It just irks me that I voiced my concerns about where I would stay and how I would get around and they assured me they had that covered. Then they tell me at the last minute they're not going to be able to help. Thank god they didn't wait until I was in Iowa before telling me!!

    I would be disappointed as well. We have had out of town company for funerals and no room - but heck we just made room. Like you said air beds and couches. I am so sorry Pikachu

    Awww, pikachu . . .

    I'm so, SO sorry.

    A grandmother's life and love is so special in a magical, unexplainable way. I feel your pain. Truly, I do.

    Please know and believe that.

    Your cousin and her dad?

    She sent you a message???

    Didn't even CALL YOU WITH A REASONABLE EXPLANATION????

    My God.

    What GOES around, COMES around, and their day is coming.

    You are in my deepest thoughts and prayers, sweetie.

    I'm SO sorry.
