The black cloud lingers

My grandfather (father’s side) died early this morning. He had been staying in the hospital for about a week with pneumonia. A lot of family out in Hawaii were able to be with him around the clock, like my father who got out there at the beginning of the week. I am glad he was surrounded by a lot of people that love him and that he had a living will and did not suffer too much. He was 99 years old and would have been 100 in August.

As for my grandmother (mother’s side), she had a stroke and is now residing in a hospice for her final days.

2006 has been a rough year for me already. The only word I can use to describe it would be “chaotic.”
