I still remember the day my grandma died... She died at home with us and mom and I had spent three years taking care of her... it was December 1, 1997 at 9:45pm, she had been suffering from pneumonia. Mom was in with her and grandma called out my dead uncles name and she was gone... I was only 14 and dealt with my moms grief and everyone elses but my own until over a month and a half later when I broke down and told mom I felt guilty because I thought it was my fault grandma died... it was one of the hardest things in my life... and it still haunts me

I think maybe she called out your uncles name because she saw him and knew she was going to be with him. You shouldn't feel guilty, there was nothing you could do.

I know its just that I guess in a way I always resented my mother for making me help take care of grandma when I was so young so I didn't take care of her the best I knew I could
