A Last Goodbye


First, let me start by telling you the history between my maternal grandmother and myself. She was my mother when my real mother wasn't. Most of my childhood was full of turmoil and it seemed the only happy times were when I was with my grandparents. I was never very close to them, but I knew they loved me and would do anything for me and my siblings at anytime. As I grew older, I began to get closer to my grandmother. I had met a man that I had become engaged to and planned on marrying. Since my mother was never around and not to involved with me getting married, I sat many times with my grandmother and discussed the plans for my wedding. My wedding date was set for Sept 1983.

She helped me choose all the right things from flowers to colors of the dresses and what kind of suit my grandfather was going to wear (he was giving me away). Well, on the evening of July 2, 1983 I received a phone call from a family member that my grandmother had been rushed to the hospital after having a stroke and the doctor had asked that all the family come to the hospital because her condition was bad and he didn't expect her to live through the night. I told them that I would be there as soon as I could. It was the 4th of July weekend. My fiancé, who was my roommate at the time, told me that it was not a good idea to travel at this time. I lived about an hour and 15 minutes to the hospital where she had been taken. I pleaded and pleaded with him to take me to see her and her refused, not letting me go by myself neither, telling me that it would not be safe to travel and losing one life was better than two or three. I was beside myself.

I drove around town trying to find my brother but was not able to locate him, in hopes that he would drive me. I returned home and laid on the sofa crying and sobbing because I felt like I would never be able to tell my grandmother how much I loved her. I called the hospital one time before I turned in for the night just to see how she was. They told me that she was taken to surgery and that she had an dissecting aortic aneurysm which was to big to repair. I just knew she was going to die, but I kept believing and praying that she would make it. I went to bed around 11pm that night and I laid there with my eyes closed, saying a prayer for her and thinking about everything that she had done for me and my family throughout our lives. I don't remember what time I had finally fallen to sleep, but I was awakened suddenly with a very strong feeling that someone was in the room with me, sitting on the end of my bed. I had even felt the end of the bed sink as if someone had sat on it. I looked at the clock at this time for some reason, and it read 2:30 am.

It was at this time that a feeling of comfort and peace came over me and I quickly returned to sleep. The next morning, I had awakened and immediately called the hospital to check on my grandmother since I had heard nothing during the night. I asked for her room and the person on the other end of the line told me she would connect me with the waiting room. I knew that something was wrong. My aunt had picked up the phone and I asked her about "grandma." She told me she passed away during the night.

I asked her what time, and she told me 2:30 am. My heart just sank, but at the same time, I felt peaceful and no longer worried for my grandmother. I now know that it was she that was in the room with me. She had come to say goodbye after she had died and left me with a feeling that has helped me through my life and it has made me a much stronger person. I now work as a Paramedic and I have been part of many unexplained events such as the gift of love after death. I have to wonder ... is she my guardian angel?
