a great loss
Sunday, July 14, 2013
Yesterday my grandmother passed away. We found out she had ovarian cancer about five weeks ago and apparently she's had it for years. It was one of those things that just snuck up. My grandmother was 86 but she wasn't your typical 86-year-old. She walked twice a day. She barely took any medication. She ate really well for the most part (she used to boast about her cereal with ground flax and seeds). She was healthier than many middle-aged people I know. That's why this was such a shock to everyone around her.
We'll celebrate her life this coming weekend. It's what she wanted. No black. No tears (right). Just a celebration of all she was and everyone she brought into this world. Je t'aime Mama. xo
