Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers Yesterday afternoon my grandmother died. She lived a very full life just over 90 years but this one is pretty tough as she is my last living grandparent and the only one I really got to know in my 26 years of life. A little background: My family is Haitian, both of my parents were born there. My grandmother gave birth to 11 children, 10 of which are still living. She came to the US with very little but worked for the bare minimum and was able to bring all her children to the US. She was probably the most kind, loving, sweetest person I knew. The last time I saw her was a great moment, I had gone to NY for a trip to see some friends and went to surprise her at my uncle's house. The look on her face was priceless and she wouldn't stop hugging me. A couple years ago she started having problems with her kidneys and had been undergoing dialysis regularly. She had been doing ok during that time. On Easter Sunday she had to be hospitalized for pneumonia. It ended up being too much for her body to handle and she passed late in the afternoon yesterday. I'm glad she's not suffering anymore but I am going to miss her a lot. It sounds like the funeral will be a week from Saturday so be prepared for a brief absence from me during that time. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers, thanks.
