And Death Do Us Part

My very last post last night at 11:49pm was titled Marriage Proposals.

5:15am - My mom's cellphone rings. I get that pit in the stomach and run to answer it since she couldn't hear it. I miss the call and check the number. 252 area code. Don't recognize it. Figure it is wrong number and go back to bed.

5:30am - My home phone rings. I know something is up now. I run to get it and catch it just as the answering machine picks up. It is my uncle from Virginia. He has called to tell us that my Grandma passed in her sleep last night.

Even though you know the day will come it still choked me up to hear it.

She would have been 93 in August.

I am really sorry, Amy. Wow, though, she lived a long life. I lost both my grandmothers years ago and I miss them terribly. I find that as I'm older, I wish I would've asked their advice more!! Now I wish they were here to tell me what to do!
