Grandma died this morning
At least her suffering is over. We've been holding vigil at her bedside for the past 3 days. The funeral is Saturday, which happens to be both my mother's & my birthday. Right now we're calling family & friends to let them know; quite the daunting task given her huge Irish Catholic family. All I can think about right now is the empty seat I'll have to look at at my wedding in June; it's going to be hard not to tear up. RIP, grandma; you're in a better place now.
