Last night, my grandmother lost her long, slow battle with Alzheimer's. Though it was ugly and mean, we are fortunate that she was spared some of the truly horrible shit that comes even further down that particular road. She was one hell of a lady and she will be... and has been... sorely missed by all that know her.

I hate hearing this. I'm so sorry. I'm glad she (and your family) was spared some of the worst. But it's terribly sad.

My condolences go out to you - I lost my grandmother the same way.

Always remember that your grandmother is now at peace.

I lost my MIL to it in 2006. I'm not over losing her yet.

Sending you condolences. Sorry for your loss.
