My grandmother recently passed away due to heart failure. I believe my grandmother suffered from slight strokes before she decided to come to me and my mother for help. We helped her change her diet and physical habits. My grandmother would say how good she felt and we could see positive physical changes in her. However, she still lived her life the way she wanted. She eventually had heart surgery about 6 years ago and after that I saw my grandmother change from the grandmother I had always known. In the meanwhile, my mother, I believe also suffered from a stroke that affected her vision. Both of them suffer from glaucoma but the strokes advanced things. My mother's eating habits are pretty good but coronary disease just runs in the family and she is living her best possible life. I love my grandmother forever and I hope my mother lives 88+ years like my grandmother.
