Babe's grandma went home to be with the Lord yesterday. We got the call when we were on the road driving home to MN.
Even though we are sad that she has passed, Babe and I are grateful that she didn't die on Wednesday, our embryo transfer day. That would have been really difficult for us.
Grandma was quite a character. Though not highly educated, she was sharp, witty and had a lot of spunk. She would watch people like a hawk and noticed the smallest details. In fact when Babe and I were first engaged, we were at a family dinner. She was the first to notice my engagement ring! She was very competitive when it came to games which we played a lot. She didn't mess around and spoke her mind as she pleased. But she loved her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids.
We will miss her terribly! I was privileged enough to spend over a decade knowing her, and helping take care of her during the last days of her life.
Grandma, we miss you already but I bet you are having a great time dancing a polka with Grandpa!
