saying good-bye from a far

DSCF5721 is never easy. 

yesterday I got news that my last surviving grand parent passed away.  He’s been sick for a while and so it was not surprising, but even knowing that doesn’t make it easier.

my Grandmother passed away a couple of months ago and his own illness took a turn for the worst. Last week they celebrated his 90th birthday.  I’m sad but at the same time at peace because I know now that his aged mind and body is at rest now.  He had a good 90 years of life.
