I'm still here...

Sorry for the long absence. Things have been sad around here...

My grand-ma passed away last Friday morning. She had been unconscious since Monday, I got to her bedside on Monday evening and stayed there on and off, between work, home and family until my parents arrived from South Carolina on Tuesday night. My grand-ma put up a fight 'til the end when she passed away while holding my dad's hand. I was by her side not too long after she passed and saw her at peace... It is hard to lose a loved one, to see your parents in pain and struggling with the loss. I have very found memories of my grand-ma, especially about food (but isn't that the way with grand-ma's? their food is always soooooo much better! She's the only one that ever got me to eat prunes!!!!) The next couple of days will be hard as we are saying our final goodbyes. I'm still not ready...

So I will be back when life has settled down a bit ...
