Sad News

I have stories and I have pictures of my college roommate's wedding this past weekend in Connecticut, and a story about my first ever flat tire, which conveniently came as we raced, late, towards the airport, and of Matt's coworker, who saved us....

But those will have to wait until after I get back from my grandfather's funeral. He died Sunday morning, in his sleep. Matt and I are headed up to Kalamazoo for the wake and the funeral. We'll be back towards the weekend.

I'm sorry for your loss. However, it seems like it was very peaceful for your grandfather. And you can take solace in that.

Marcia, I'm really sorry to hear about your grandfather. That's so sad, though I'm glad to hear he went peacefully.

And in an additional chapter of our we're-cyber-twins-leading-parallel-lives story, I also went to my college roommate's wedding this past weekend.

Take care.

I am so sorry for your loss. I had a really hard time when my Grandpa passed away. That was about 4 years ago and I still get sad every time I talk to my Grandma. Anyway. I am so so sorry.
