What a beautiful and heartfelt eulogy towards your wife's Gran. She sounds like a great person. And people do live on in some way, despite death.

It's quite amazingly positive one can be in bereavement. Old folks know the score. We can go through teenage and semi-adult rebellion and anti-this and anti-that, but family are hugely important.

My old man died about 4 years ago at the grand old age of 84 I think. We stopped counting! I never got on with him until his last 4 or 5 years on earth. A great guy though. He pops up in my dreams once in a while, and one of my sisters still talks to him...for real! I read a passage from The Bible for him at his funeral and carrried his coffin, despite being an atheist, because that is what he would have wanted me to say and do. He was a very devout Catholic, had social morals, but way too strict for me.

People live on, in memory and spirit. I like to be positive about these things!

Take Care fella.
