I would normally not talk about family matters, but my paternal grandmother died today. It seems more unseemly to ignore the day. Please spare a prayer for Mary if you do that sort of thing.
We though we had more time with her than we did, but I am so proud of her self-determined decision making around her health care. It seems she prepared for her death in ways that saved her family confusion. Let her rest in peace.
Oh, and smokers, you can stop right now.
