My father’s mother passed away at 11:30 this morning. Grandma Kay, as I called her, was diagnosed with cancer a couple of years ago and the doctors didn’t expect her to live long past Christmas 2003, but when I saw her at my father’s retirement ceremony this past July she was, to quote an earlier journal entry, “...as swordlike as ever: bright and sharp.” Her physical condition deteriorated drastically in the last few weeks, but according to Dad and Uncle Jon her death was quick and free of pain.

Goodbye, Grandma. I love you, and I’ll miss you.
