Irish Eyes Now Smiling in Heaven

Brian and I just learned that his great-grandmother (maternal) passed away this morning. She was 96 and had fallen and broken her back a few days ago. She had almost completely forgotten everyone in her life. Most of her time lately seemed like her mind was stuck back in Ireland, where she's from. Her husband passed away some time ago (Brian believes it was more than 10 years ago). While I had seen her several times since I've known Brian, she never recognized me, but that's okay.

I know that she's now with her husband and other loved ones, and that she can now remember everything and she's no longer in pain. And, we know that the next time she sees us she will know us.

Here's a picture of Brian with her taken at our wedding almost 3 years ago -- I absolutely love this picture (taken by Amy Herfurth).

My sympathies. *hugs* That is a great old age. A fantastic photo, too.

I'm sorry to hear that. My best wishes go with you both.
