R.I.P. Bonnie (1936-2006)

Bonnie is my grandmother.. she was the only grandparent I ever met because all the others died at least 6 years before I was born.. I wasn't close to Bonnie until family problems at home often landed me at her house from January to March of 2006.. In March, I turned 16 and I began coming to Bonnie's house to get away from my problems at home and, willingly, to be with her.
I decided to spend my summer with her.. One week I had a doctor's appointment so I had to come back home for that week and the day I came back to Bonnie's house, she was in severe pain and my aunts took her to the hospital in Memphis. Two days later, June 26, 2006, Bonnie, a smoker from about age 12 (the year 1948) till Dec. 31, 2005 (age 69), was diagnosed with lung cancer. A week later she got out of the hospital and was placed under hospice care at my aunt's house.
On July 18, 2006, with her oldest daughter holding her hand, my grandmother passed away.
July 20, 2006 was her visitation and funeral. R.I.P. Bonnie. I miss and love you.
