It is weird to be mad at your grandma after she died. I found out that my grandma, who I loved, who I would sit and eat bowls of ice cream with and yell at the tv commercials with, did a terrible thing. She had many children and yet when her father was sick she took him into her house and cared for him. Well, apparently this asshole would make his grandkids jack him off and who knows what else. He would pay them nickles or dimes to do so. Granddaughters and grandsons. My uncle said he never knew that his brother had done it as well until after his death he said, “he still owes me 20 cents” to which his brother replied, “he owes me 25”.
My mother pulled my grandma aside and told her and she DIDN’T put a stop to it. I found this out after my grandma had died, after my mom had died.
I guess my mom, on her death bed, forgave my grandma. My grandma didn’t ask for forgiveness my mom just offered it.
My mom is a far better person than I am.
I am mad at my grandma and I feel sick that my mom, as a little girl had to experience this as well as having her mother ALLOW it to continue. Your mother should be your protector.
I would’ve killed the man.
This has tainted my memories of my grandma and made me admire my mom even more. As well as feel more guilty about what a shitty daughter I was to her.
