Grey's anatomy is my life! No show has ever made me laugh harder or cry like a fool. I will be lost if season 8 is indeed the final season. I took it hard when george died but I will be inconsolable if this show ended. I know it won't last forever but I feel lik its characters are my family....


GA and PP are going up. Excellent. :D
