Narrative Essay About Grandmother Passing Away.
Forever Remembered I knew that after walking into room 113 my life was going to be changed. I saw nurses saying, Ã¢â¬Å"sorryÃ¢â¬ , familiar faces with tears falling fast from their eyes, and arms opening wide for hugs. I knew something was wrong as I saw her lying still in her bed, eyes closed, and arms crossed over her stomach. Grandma DorothyÃ¢â¬â¢s second stroke had slowly taken her life. Later, I wake up to my dad flicking my bedroom light on and him standing tall in my doorway. I could tell by the way he looked at me he didnÃ¢â¬â¢t want today to come.He slowly walked to my bedside and crawled into bed with me. I had never seen my dad cry before so I did what any ten year old would do, I wrapped my small arms around his neck and cried with him. Ã¢â¬Å"I love you Daddy. Ã¢â¬ Now, August 9th was the day we all dreaded, the funeral. I had never been to a funeral before; this was all new to me. People were dressed in black handing out tissues and saying small prayers for my family. I watched some man I had never seen before speak such honest words about my grandmother.Now, this man had said something I knew IÃ¢â¬â¢d never forget, Ã¢â¬Å"her golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands go to rest, god broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best. Ã¢â¬ He brought so much emotion to this wide crowd of people; there were happy tears, sad tears, happy smiles, sad smiles, happy memories, and sad memories. He said, Ã¢â¬Å"Now today we remember the life of Dorothy Edna Callahan,Ã¢â¬ as he slowly lowered the casket six feet below the ground.My dad slowly bent down and wrapped his muscular arms around me, almost crushing my red rose. I said, Ã¢â¬Å"IÃ¢â¬â¢m going to miss her so much daddy, why did she have to go? Ã¢â¬ He whispered back, Ã¢â¬Å"ItÃ¢â¬â¢s going to be alright Casey IÃ¢â¬â¢ll miss her too but sheÃ¢â¬â¢s in a better place now. Ã¢â¬ I walked away slowly, tears falling fast from my eyes, a red rose in one hand and my dadÃ¢â¬â¢s in the other. After today I knew I was going to remember my Grandmother forever.
