My mom and sleeping grandmother. She had a stroke last Thursday and it looks like it was a terminal event. She's on hospice now, so over the weekend my mom and I visited her at her retirement community. She is my only remaining grandparent, aside from her husband of four years.

  1. I'm so sorry, Carly. And for your mom and the rest of your family too. I'm glad you have a little time to say goodbye. I love you.

    And, artistically, I really like this picture. The B/W, the way both of their bodies are angled. Nice. Not "pretty" but realistic.

  2. It was wonderful to be able to have a few days with her. The first day especially she was pretty alert, so I was able to talk with her and say goodbye. And it was so great to be able to spend those days with my family. It meant so much to both my mom and myself.

  3. It always seems that sad events happen at once. I'm sorry for you to have lost two family members so recently.
