My grandma died.

Yesterday my grandma Peg Yarnelle died around 2pm. She was 89 years old and lived a long full life. Two years longer than her husband Joe Yarnelle who died at 86. It was clear she was dying a few days ago when I decided to come out and visit. I got a call from my mother a half hour before arriving that Grandma had died. I was disappointed not to be able to see her but I also realized the reason I was coming was to support and be with my mother. She lost her best friend and biggest fan and it's going to hard for her for a long time. My grandmother was a real picture and a good sport, she was always up for anything. And she gave wonderful back tickles. I will miss her.

Me with Grandma.

Sorry Ben to hear about your grandma. Boy this has been a year of losses. It is hard for a daughter to say goodbye to her momna. We just do not know the world without them. I know you and Josh will be a comfort to your mother. Helen
