This sounds a little weird, but I'm in the hospital on my laptop. My grandmother is diagnosed with lung cancer and has till about Wednesday to live. I want people to know how appreciated she is. Could you guys give her some support or final words even though you don't know her? I want to show this to her before she dies. A bunch of my family members including me have said some good things to her but I want her to know she is really important to me.

Thanks,

Sorry to hear that Gab, I'm sure our words will ring hollow and be insincere, because we don't know her. Just enjoy the time you have with her and I'm sure your presence and love will make her a lot happier than the words of people she doesn't know.

No, I'm just kidding, that's extremely cold. I don't know you very well, Gab, but I've lost my grandmother before I was born because of cancer as well. I'm sure she'd be proud of you for doing something like that for her on a public forum, and I wish her a peaceful rest, although I know her even less than I know you. That said, good luck to you and your grandmother in her struggles.

When I lost my grandfather, it was hard on me because he was the only grandparent I had memories of. I hope that she goes peacefully and without pain. Know that DDO supports you both, and if you ever need to talk, I am sure there are people here who are willing to listen.

Yeah, I know. I must have not been paying attention. Sorry.

Thanks for your support. I wanted to know people care about her even though they don't even know her. That's how important she is. I can't imagine my mom being lost. But I know that some day, it will eventually happen. Thanks for the kind words to her. I don't know if she understood what I said to her, but I read this out loud to her.

My father died over three years ago. I didn't see him the day he died, and I was really mad about that - but I was told that I wouldn't have wanted to see him. He died of complications from lung cancer. Nonetheless, I would've rather been with him until the moment he died.

Don't be concerned about what to say, just be there.

Tell her that the afterlife is what she dreams it to be, for she has the sweetest dreams of all, and there's nothing to be afraid of. Tell her you personally will make her proud and how she had such a great impact on you in being a better person. Most importantly, tell her that she's a good person.

May God bless her. Since you love her so much, I am guessing she was a kind and sweet grandma. I hope that she'll have a great time spending her remaining life with her loving family and loving grandma. I kinda envy you to be honest. You got to spent time with your grandma and showed her how much you loved her...I never got to do that. When I last saw my grandma, I gave her unwilling kiss and left. 5 months later, she passed away, and I was unable to attend her funeral. Her and I never got to talk to each other normally, just hi and good bye. I barely got to know her.. I wish her a good time and hope that you'll have a good time with her.

It's hard to know what to say, but what I would do is tell her how much she meant to me, and how I'd honor her by my life, and how I'd never forget her. I'm praying for you through this rough time. I recently lost my grandmother to colon cancer. Unfortunately, I wasn't that close to her, but I won't ever forget her. Be strong for her and your family. You want her to be proud of you. :)

I am sorry to hear about this Gabe, and I agree with others, that you should spend time with your grandmother during her last momments. Tell her that you love her and that she has been a positive impact on her life, and how you enjoy spending time with her.
