I'm so sorry to hear of your familys loss.
I recently lost my grandma, too. She was 96-and just like your grandma, saw most of her loved ones leave this life before her. Her first 4 babies died shortly after birth, and when her 8th baby was 6 weeks old, her husband died. My dad was her 7th baby. All of her 7 brothers and sisters died before her as well. On the day she died, it was sad, but I couldn't help but think of the wonderous reunion that happened with all of those people when she arrived! :):):)
I hope you find some peace and comfort at this sad time.
