My grandma died from terminal small cell lung cancer Dec. 16, 2003. She knew she was getting worse and worse and she knew she was gonna die before 2004. Her last wish was to make it until after Christmas. She wanted one more holiday with her loved ones. I lost my dad in 2002 and brother in 2003 and didn't get to say "goodbye" to either of them. I wanted so bad to say goodbye to my grandma. My mom would work for 2 weeks straight and then be up north with my grandma for 2 weeks. I was in high school and basically living alone. My mom was with my grandma and on Dec. 15 she knew she had to come get me so I could say goodbye. (My mom is a nurse). It was a blizzard and we stopped about 90 minutes from my grandma's house for the night. We got up super early and drove the rest of the way. We got to my grandma's 20 minutes after she died. We laid her to rest just days before Christmas. I miss her so much.
