Beginning or Ending, It’s Hard to Tell

  Traditional Chinese new year, which is called Spring Festival has passed. Spring, universally acknowledged that is the first season of all the four seasons. That is why we used to regard spring as the new beginning. As the proverb saying: a good year is determined by its spring. Thus, we can learn the connotation of this festival from its nomenclature.
  As a matter of fact, this Spring Festival is far away from good holiday or something delighted for me, because my grandma passed away just on the very special day of the year. Then I realize, oh, Spring Festival is not just concerned with the beginning, it is related to the ending as well.
  Along with the age added up, I witnessed many things. I have seen birth as well as death. I felt not only delight but also sorrow. Then I learned to calm down. I learned not to laugh aloud since maybe someone came into difficulties; I learned not to cry in public, because everyone has his or her own worries.
  At the day that all the country celebrated the coming new year, my grandma went to another world. When I heard the news, I lost in silence. At the very day happened the very thing. Now you see, many things left no choice for us. We can't choose the day to birth nor the day to day, and it seems like we can only learn to receive.
  Everyone would meet his or her day. We all know that, but we don't when. It can be far away, as well as any time. 
  My grandma is at the age of 83a and she was serene when she was gone. At this time all my grandparents have gone. This feeling is terrible. I kept silence, stared at the snow and thought nothing. I can't think, and I had no tears even I felt so bad.
  My mother criticizes me for my slow moving and says that I would suffer for this, but I think now that time is limited for everyone, why not take my time to live as I like if only I don't bother others. Sometime we need to hurry up, sometime we need to slow down and enjoy the feeling of relaxing.

You can morn her death or celebrate her life. With the wonderful tribute that you wrote it is obvious that she was greatly loved.  
You honored her with beautiful words.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
