Goodbye, Nana

This morning, I awoke to the news that my wife's grandmother passed away. She was a wonderful woman with an amazing life. She worked at Calspan to make ends meet before moving on to her true calling as a florist.

She was always right in the middle of things, keeping the party going. She made you smile, she made you drinks. Sometimes, the drinks made you smile. She was always a full of hospitality and kind words. She hosted some of the best parties I have ever been to, especially at Christmas time. She was always there for her children, grandchildren and more than a few great-grandchildren. 

She could tell a hell of a story. 

Nana, you will be sore missed but always loved. 

For a while, I will be attending to family needs. The website is on automatic mode, so anything you see here would have been scheduled over a week ago, under a different set of priorities. I could turn it off, but I won't. That wouldn't be hospitable.
