Something to smile and something to cry about...  
First of all..

I received my very first christmas-card from Xina (twasadark )!! Squeeeee! It´s so cute!! I really really love it!! Thank you so much!! *hugs*
And..it´s my pleasure!!!

And now..something sad..
Do you remember my great granny who celebrated her 100th birthday in september? She died today in the early morning. She suffered from a heavy pneumonia she got three days ago. But she had a long and fulfilled life and died a peaceful dead. And I tell you something..she lived exactly 36 603 days. What a long time!

REST IN PEACE, GRANNY!!!

Love
Andy

*hugs* I'm sorry to read that, dear. 100 is such an amazing age to reach.

Thank you so much! *hugs back*
It really is a wonderful age and the good thing is, she didn´t have pain or anything..she just got weak and then she died.

We all will miss her...

OH SÜSSE! Das tut mir ganz schrecklich leid für dich und deine Familie!

*KNUDDELS*
Andrea: crosslupina78 on November 21st, 2008 07:34 pm (UTC)
Danke dir! *knuddel*
Es war schon vorauszusehen, weil sie ja keinen Schluckreflex mehr hatte, dh sie konnte weder richtig essen noch trinken, und da ist eben ein kleiner teil davon statt in die speiseröhre in die lunge gelangt, und das hat sich entzündet. Sie hat diese Lungenentzündung drei Tage lang gehabt und heute morgen nach dem Frühstück ist sie dann ganz friedlich gestorben.Ausserdem...sie hatt ein ganzes Jahrhundert miterlebt..das ist doch auch was tolles! Wir werden sie alle sehr vermissen!

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your beloved Granny. She was so blessed to have a long life and relatively peaceful death. Despite that, it's always sad when someone departs this mortal coil. *big hugs to you and your family*

I'm amazed that you received the card so quickly! I just mailed it out on Monday. My faith in the postal system is increased greatly.

Blessings~
Andrea: crosslupina78 on November 21st, 2008 07:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks sweetie!
And you´re right..she had a wonderful, long life. She will be missed. *hugs*

hehe
me too, believe me..I guess I´ll send my cards earlier than I wanted bc our postal service is on a very low level at the moment..hundreds of postmen/women are losing there jobs at the moment and I guess there will be strikes too. But I believe in wishful thinking..gg

*hugs*

Ohh honey, das tut mir sooooooooooo leid!
Meine Gedanken sind bei dir und deiner Familie!!!
Sie hat aber ein schönes alter erreicht und es ist schön das sie friedlich sterben durfte.

*ganz fest in arm nehm*
Andrea: crosslupina78 on November 21st, 2008 07:40 pm (UTC)
Danke dir, Tanja!! *drück dich*
Stimmt, das Alter ist erstrebenswert, man hofft halt nur für sich selber, dass man so lange wie möglich gesund bleibt, geistig wie körperlich. Und sie ist zu Hause gestorben, das ist besser als im Krankenhaus oder so.

Dankeschön! Und stimmt, es war ein schönes, arbeitreiches Leben. Und sie hatte einen respektvollen Tod. Zuhause und in den Armen meiner Tante und meiner Oma. Sie wird uns halt allen sehr fehlen.

I am so sorry for your loss sweetie! I am happy to hear she lead a long, happy life though! And you each get to hold onto awesome memories of her! *hugs*
Andrea: crosslupina78 on November 21st, 2008 08:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much Kimberly!! *hugs*

I am so sorry to read your news - So amazing a life and really great that she was able to celebrate her Centenary earlier this year.

*hugs*
Andrea: crosslupina78 on November 21st, 2008 08:29 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much!
She really lived a long life with good and bad times, but she never coplained about it. And I tell you, this woman deserves a special place in heaven. She was a deeply religious woman and I really believe that she´s in a better place right now.

*hugs*

Thank you sweetheart. And true, she had a long life and her death didn´t come unexpected for us. But it´s always sad to lose somebody.

Danke dir. Es war ja schon fast zu erwarten. Ich mein, sie ist immerhin 100 geworden, und die Lungenentzündung war halt eine logische Folge, da sie ja keinen Schluckreflex mehr hatte und einiges eben anstatt in die Speiseröhre in die Lunge gelangt ist. Aber sie ist in den Armen meiner Tante und meiner Oma gestorben, dh sie war nicht allein.

*drück dich auch*
