In this month where we do honor loved ones and friends who have passed on, this is a great thread tsq.
I've had some friends pass away but the one who saddened me the most in my life was my Grandma on my father's side. I forget the year she passed away (I was coming home from school of religion when she passed on, so I'd like to say early to mid 90s, but it was in October) but she was a saint. She was active, would always make me smile, had the best cinnamon rolls you would ever eat, and whenever she came to our house, she would help clean it. She was a real inspiration and I took it really hard when he died.
