So sad today

Today I say goodbye to my grandmother, who died on December 23rd, after a fairly short illness. Her death came only two days after we buried my aunt, her second eldest daughter. This has been a very hard and sorrowful Christmas season for my family, with two deaths so close together, but it has shown us how important it is to have such a close-knit family as ours is.

My condolences on the deaths of your grandmother and aunt. These things are never easy and the holidays tend to accentuate these events. You're right: family does help one get through trying times like these. You're fortunate to have a close-knit family at times like this.
