Granddaughter finds grandma’s happy life note years after her death

Granddaughter finds grandma’s happy life note years after her death

Three years after her grandmother passed away, Geneane Tomasulo found a note from her grandmother she never knew existed. Written while her grandmother was alive, the short autobiographical note chronicles her life and describes how she’s “had a happy life.” It’s short, sweet and cuts to what matters most in life.

“It was awful when she died because she was outliving everyone – even outlived my mother, her own daughter,” said Tomasulo. “I know we made her happy, obviously, but I was always afraid she was sad from losing her husband and my mother, both to cancer. Nobody should have to bury their child.”

But after discovering her grandmother’s note, Tomasulo is touched to know that her grandma had a “very enjoyable life.”

“The letter showed that she was so humble and simple that little things could make her happy," said Tomasulo, “and the tragedies that she endured didn't make her think any less of her life.”
