Anyway this week I learned that my grandmother passed away and I opted not to go down South for the funeral. I wasn't that close to her but her death still affected me and she was my last living grandparent. Thankfully she lived a long time! And that explains this tweet I posted on Tuesday:
the sinking feeling one gets in their gut is when they learn that they're grandmother passed away :( #fbMy stated purpose as to why I don't want to go to her funeral is primarily I don't like funerals. Had a bit of a tough time with my dad's funeral years ago. Although I had attended some funerals since that time for relatives that have largely been a presence all my life this would be something that would be tough. Not sure I want to see my grandmother in a casket.

And now for the unbelievable feeling that Gurtine Burns Howard is gone!
