sitting shiva

My great grandmother died yesterday. In accord with Jewish tradition, she will be buried tonight before sundown. No one will be there with her.

My grandmother is in pieces, and we are all trying to be there for her. Custom is very important to her. But it's tough because she and Grandma were strained emotionally for a long time. They were social, but there was a lot going on there.

I miss Gram, but I was prepared for it. I dunno if people like my Grandmother can ever get prepared for their mother's death.

But needless to say, the fam is sitting shiva right now. We sent flowers. Hopefully we will go see the grave sometime soon.

In other news, dad had his knee surgery today. As far as I know, everything went well. Just putting it out there.
