Losing My Grandmother

            Not everything in life has a fairytale ending. There are certain points in life where you realize that holding on to grudges and anger doesn't do you any good. You realize that family is the most important and outstanding gift that someone can have, especially after losing someone who you cherished and looked up to throughout the years.
             January 23, 2012 was one of the most heartbreaking days of my life. I lost a great woman that inspired me to be a better person and follow my dreams; my grandmother, Maria Luisa Rodriguez. She was an inspiration to me and a great joy to have in my life for 17 years. My grandmother would always worry about others and would try to help them in any way that she could. She would help others learn from their mistakes and share great experiences with the ones she loved. .
             It all started on a Monday morning while I was getting ready for school. We received a phone call saying my grandmother had just passed away. All I could think of at that moment was how I was no longer going to see her and have her for the good and the bad moments in my life. I can still see my father's reaction after hearing that his mother was no longer part of his life. I was very nervous when we were on our way to my grandma's house because I knew that I was going to see her for the last time even though she wouldn't be able to see me or talk to me. As I walked in to the house, I saw my family sitting on the couch and I could see how sad and heartbroken everyone was over the tragedy that occurred. I remember glancing over at the floor and seeing my grandmother laying there very pale and cold. My uncles were devastated when they walked in to the house to see their mother. I wish I could have found the right words to help them feel better and comfort them, but there are no right words to say to someone who has lost a loved one. .
             A few hours later more and more family started to arrive to my grandmother's house.
