My last grandparent, Grandma Winnie (as Maggie knows her), passed away on Thursday morning. Lots of people have asked if it was expected or if she was sick. She was 94 years old and had dementia/Alzheimer's for some time. She had a massive heart attack on Tuesday, but was alert and her "usual" self on Wednesday night when everyone left the hospital. It always comes as a surprise, no matter what.
Maggie now thinks that the nursing home is empty. Aunt Clara and Grandma (they weren't related to each other) moved to the nursing home around the same time and were both there until shortly before Aunt Clara passed away. Maggie thinks "they're all gone now" since they've both gone to Heaven. Grandma Winnie was also Maggie & Ellie's last great grandparent.
Of course, there are tons of funny Grandma-stories that I want Maggie & Ellie to know, but can't write them down just yet.
