Lisa’s grandmother finally got her wish — which was to go to sleep and just not wake up. She was 3 months shy of her 92nd birthday. July 4th was her 68th wedding anniversary.
She passed away this morning, with Lisa’s sister at her side.
As Lisa’s sister and mother said, though, the easy part was the passing.
The hard part now is telling Lisa’s grandfather, who has been at a nursing care facility since he and Lisa’s mother were in an accident a couple of weeks ago (he got a compound fracture of his right arm, and his left thub was broke, leaving him in casts on both arms and unable to do anything for himself).
While we knew it was coming, it certainly doesn’t make it any easier for Lisa.
She’ll go home at some point this coming week so she can be with her mother and grandfather, and can attend the services.
