FilKONtario report posting has been interrupted because earlier this week, my paternal grandmother passed away. The funeral was today.

My paternal grandfather (pictured above, at Justin’s wedding), died in 2009, and my maternal grandmother died in 2001, not long after I moved to Buffalo. I wrote about losing her here.


(One of my favorite photos of her. I don’t have any more recent photos scanned.)

I know I’m very lucky to have known all of my grandparents, and to have them in my life as long as I have…but it’s very heavy on my mind that I only have one grandparent left. I’m too exhausted to put any more thoughts together right now, so I’ll leave it with this.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss – you can see the love and pride in those photos with you. I hope you have lots of good memories to provide solace.
    Hugs, Morva
