Damn! Damn, damn, damn, damn, damn! Grandpa's gone, yesterday morning. Grandma's all alone now, becoming unstuck in time as dementia or Alzheimer's begins to claim her. Mom is a mess, understandably so, even though her father told her on Friday to go back home to Michigan. I've missed the opportunity to see him, to say goodbye, he wasn't able to hold out another few weeks. It seems he never did recover from the last move; I'm glad that he's no longer in pain, but Damn! I wanted to see him again. Nothing will keep me from seeing Grandma next week.
