My grandmother died tonight. I get to go to another funeral this week. She’s been in bad shape for a while so this was a blessing. The past couple of days she’s been on hospice care so she had morphine at least. All of her living children, her youngest sister, some grandchildren and other assorted friends and relatives got to be with her to the end.

She was so gorgeous

With my grandfather, who died in a car accident 40 years ago

With their oldest daughter Peggy, who died from breast cancer 30 years ago

With her oldest sister Betty, who died almost 2 years ago now, and my grandfather’s sister Betty, whose funeral was on Saturday. She and the second Betty were best friends and that’s how she came to marry my grandfather.
