July 5th, 1917–October 24th, 2011
My Grandmother, on my father’s side, passed away last night at the age of 94. I don’t really know what to say. I do know that I was very fortunate back in 2008, when my parents took Melissa and I to Puerto Rico, that her birthday actually fell right when we were there. Out of my four Grandparents, that was the first and only time that I can remember being at a birthday for any of them. Even then I felt like it was special, knowing that I was a part of her birthday (her 91st that year).
I only saw her a few times in my life, either on the 3 times I went with my parents to visit or the few times that she came over her to the states; but those were always special occasions and I will never forget her.
