Last Saturday, 9/22/07, dad’s mom passed away. I have been especially sad for dad because his mom was essentially his only parent. But on my part, I am sad that the broken relationships (between me and her, and her and mom, and me & mom and dad’s sister) were not restored.
But mom recently told me that when she went to say goodbye to grandma before she passed, she told dad’s sister how much they appreciated her fo all that she had done for grandma. Dad’s sister started crying and it seems that, in an instant, 25+ years of tension and bad blood may have been resolved. I can’t even express how encouraged I am!
