not the call i wanted the day before the end of 2007
My father called me this morning to tell me that my grandmother passed away Thursday night and was buried on Friday. He didn't want to tell me closer to when it happened because he thought (correctly) that I would have jumped on the plane to try to make it to the burial and he didn't want to put that on me.
It still hasn't hit me that my grandmother has passed away. I'm not sure when it will.
My grandmother taught me a lot of what I know in life.
We didn't always get along perfectly but we got on more than we didn't.
