Nan had a second stroke back in Feburary. She seemed to be recovering from it as well as you could expect, but two weeks ago today, surrounded by family, she fell asleep and just stopped breathing. There isn’t any good way to pass, but if you have to, I guess that’s about as good a way as you’re likely to get. Been away from the world since. I figured that walking around the countryside and taking a week away from everyone would help. It doesn’t really though.
