My grandmother passed away today.  I am very distraught.  She was my last living grandparent.  My father also passed away, and only my mother remains.  My ancestry is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

    Anonymous comment was me, Haejin and the gang.  Take care – it must be tough especially your mind is everywhere in the midst of big move.  God will be watching out for you all.

    Mike, my very sincere and empathetic condolonces.  I am sorry for your loss.  I never knew any of my grandparents – they all died well before I was born – and I am happy that you were able to forge a close relationship with her while you could.  God bless and best of luck in Paraguay.
