My grandma passed away yesterday at the age of 87.  It was a peaceful ending and she didn't suffer.

We will begin gathering tomorrow in Faribault - my mom and her 8 brothers, their spouses, my cousins, and our children.  Lots of people, lots of stories, lots of laughter and tears to be shared.  It will be a celebration of life, and we will ease each other's pain as families do in these times of sorrow.

It's sad, of course, but not tragic.  She lived a good life.  She gave her time and energy to her family and to the Catholic Church.  She loved and was loved.  That's what matters.
