Bad news for RedJ

If anyone is asking himself why the SU banner has a black ribbon, I can explain it.

My grandma died yesterday at the age of 94, she died from cancer. From what the doctors told us, the family, she could have suffered much more, so it was a kind of relief for her and for us that the end phase was quite short, about two week.

I hope it is okay for everyone visiting this site if the ribbon remains there for a couple of days.

Thank you, to all of you.

  1. A strong hug to you and your family from Italy.

    I am happy your grandma did not suffer much. I lost my mother to a cancer and I know how consuming that can be….

  2. I’m sorry, RedJ. It’s never easy… My thoughts and best wishes go out to you and your family.

    Who would mind the ribbon in the banner? Some might be confused, but without any headlines on the front page about Saab no longer around, I can’t see that they’d linger.

  3. Sorry for your loss, it is never easy. No matter if someone passes away from old age, a prolonged illness or through some kind of accident, it still is a hard blow.

    I lost my grandma about 3 weeks ago and although I’m starting to come around to some sort of normality now I still get a lump in my throat when I think of her or passes by the church where the funeral was held.

    My sincere condolences / Mein herzliches Beileid, RedJ

  4. Deepest condolences.

    Lost my mother, only 54. Cancer – for the second time.

    But somehow age doesn´t matter when it comes to loosing someone dear.
    Young or old – death always seem to knock on the door at the wrong time.

    Your grandma was 94. Right now it´s not much comfort, but she did
    at least live a pretty long life. With relatives caring as much as you do,
    she must have had wonderful years despite all. Also be happy for the
    fact that she didn´t have to suffer for so long. It´s a blessing.

    Remember the lovely days and keep beautiful memories dear!

  5. My condolences.
    If it’s any consolation; the end came quick after a long life, something we all hope for.
    Remember her and a part of her lives on in you.

  6. My condolences to you and your family RedJ. Leave the ribbon there as long as you need to. Having lost my Dad three years ago I still expect him to be at home with my Mum when I go to visit. In time you will hopefully come to terms with your Grandma’s death but you will never forget the joy she brought into your life.

    • That´s the hardest thing to cope with: expecting someone to be there in the phone when you call, at the door when knocking… there for you when you´re in need of advice and consolation!

      Remember the joy – the best thing to do.
