Grandma

Poh-poh was in the hospital a few weeks ago for 'bleeding in the brain'. Obviously not good. She was in the hospital until last night at 5:45pm MST when she passed away. =( Fortunately, she was surrounded by many of her children and loved ones...

Being in Toronto, and a few hours away, really sucks, but there's nothing I can do either way. Its still sad news. I saw her on Friday morning before I left with my sister, and that was really tough. She was in and out of consciousness, and seemed to recognize the both of us, especially Jenny. Seeing that tube in her nose and forcing air, and then her left arm clutching her chest, showing how painful each breath was. It was hard to watch.

I know she's been struggling the last few years after Grandpa died, and her health has been not so good as well. Poh-poh, your love and kindness will live on. Your generosity and open-heart continues to inspire many of those whose lives you've touched. Much of the work I do, is through the generosity and love you shared with mom. You will be missed.

Mom has been struggling the last few weeks, and I can't blame her. I hope she finds what she needs to move forward and move on. Its not easy losing any loved one no matter the age...

I don't think I'll feel it until the funeral (not sure when...), or when I go to visit her...
