Remembering My Bubby Green


I am taking a little break today from my regular posts to talk about a very special person who was very near and dear to my heart who passed away this morning and that is my Bubby Green. Words cannot really explain how special she was to me and how much I love her! It is a great loss for me and her family who all loved her so very much. I haven't been able to hold my tears back ever since getting the news this morning. She was an amazing grandma! 

I am thrilled that I was able to see her and hug her and tell her how much I love her just a few weeks ago when I was visiting in Florida. I didn't know it would be the last time at the time and thinking about that makes me so sad.  

She passed away peacefully and that does offer a little comfort but she will be missed so much by us all. 

Something special about my Bubby is how great of a listener she was. She always made time for me and whenever I called she would listen and help and care. She loved her children and grandchildren so much and she was so proud of them. Her boys were her world. 

I am wearing the gorgeous gold star necklace today that she gave to me when I turned 12. It hangs close to my heart where she will always be. 

I love you Bubby Green and I always will. I miss you so much! You were the best grandmother to me and I will never forget that!

I'm not sure when I will be back with another post as I feel like I need some time away to mourn. 

Hope to be back again soon.

Gigi.

  4. So sorry to hear your loss Gigi. I had the same sort of relationship as you it sounds like with my own grandma and I remember when that day came I just couldn't hold back the tears for quite a few days and the sense of sadness was just too much on my body.

    Really my thoughts are with you lovely lady. Come back whenever you feel like blogging will help you and we will all still be here ;)

  5. This reminds me of my Grandma Waterman. She was the best grandma ever. Always accepting of who I was. Always so happy to see me. When we went to her house for supper, she would always say "Now eat good, what I've got!" And she made the best apple pie! And the best fried chicken. As she got older, those were her standbys.

    Sometimes I smell a powder that smells like her and pause for a moment.

    February 24th it was 19 years she's been gone. She was 94. And she lived 30 years alone without my grandpa, the love of her life, who died in 1964. She had their 50th wedding anniversary portrait on her dresser, ande when I would see the lipstick kiss on the glass over his face, she would say "I wonder how that got there!." and she'd take her hanky and wipe it off. But next time I'd be in her bedroom, that kiss would be back on the glass.

    I became a portrait photographer, partly because of that moment. I wanted my photographs to mean as much to my customers as that photograph meant to my grandma.

    She lives in my heart and soul every day. Your Bubby will always have a special place in your heart, no matter how much time passes. The pleasure and love she brought to your life helped to make you who you are. Certainly, she's very proud of you.

    Take your time, and feel your sadness and loss. And know how fortunate you were to have her in your life. Feel yourself wrapped in our arms. And as Fee said, we'll all still be here when you're ready to come back to us.
    Thank you for feeling safe enough to share this with us.
    Thinking of you,
    Tiff
