This morning my mother got a phone call from the nursing home. Grandma is dead. She passed away between 1:30 and 3 am. She looked like she was asleep and a hell of a lot more peaceful than she has for years. This is what we wanted for her, to just fall asleep and not be in pain anymore. Mom's pretty sure she stuck around just long enough to vote in one last election because she really couldn't stand McCain.
RIP Grandma. Say "hi" to Grandpa for me. I love you.
