My grandmother died yesterday.

I’m doing OK, but really sad. She was greatly suffering over the past few weeks, and my aunt and uncle, who so selflessly cared for her, were overwhelmed. It was not an ideal situation for anyone. In less than two weeks, I was going to be there, but she there was no way she was going to make it, and it would have selfish of me to wish for her to hang on long enough for me to see her. I am so, so glad that I got to see her in December, and that she got to meet the spouse.
