I've been travelling a lot lately, mostly business trips. Last Sunday my grandmother died and I was unable to attend the funeral because of some critical meetings (my company is undergoing a crucial round of investment funding).

I'd been meaning to go visit her for months, and of course now I feel awful about putting that off. She had been having some health problems, but her passing was sudden and apparently unrelated to these health issues.

She was actually the only grandparent I ever really knew, and I rarely got to see her having grown up on the other side of the continent ...and she reminded me so much of my mother (who died many years ago). I'm going to miss her.

Dav, I wish I could tell you something that was inspirational or emotional, but I am not gifted in the vocabulary department. About all I can say is that I'm sorry - I'm sorry that you didn't get to see her, and that you're going to miss her. *big hug*
