RIP Grandma

My grandmother on my mother’s side passed away last night. She had been in the hospital for a couple of weeks after she fell in a restaurant. She had broken her leg and went into the hospital to get it operated on. I’m not clear on the details but I think when they gave her pain meds, she never woke up from it. She was 92. I was not very close with her, even though she lived in Queens. I did not grow up with her around. When I was younger, my mother stopped talking to her and we never saw her (reason still not told to me.) My last memory of her when I was younger was getting a baby doll from her for Christmas. I can’t even remember how old I was. My mother reconciled with her about 9 years ago but I still did not see her much, along with my 2 aunts and uncle and cousins. Nevertheless, I can go on and on about my family or lack of. We did meet up for dim sum back in August and my Aunt sent me some photos she took of us. Here’s the best one!

    i’m so sorry, Lisa. We have no contact with my maternal grandmother either, nor anyone on my mom’s father’s side. It’s really sad – i’d love to be more in touch with them, my Italian roots.

    Big hugs to you.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. I hope I’m still having dim sum at 92…
