Grandma - the email I didn't want to get

From: Lucas, John A

Subject: The message we've been dreading

Mom got a call from Tricia, the hospice nurse. Grandma either has died or is expected to do so today. I do not have further details. Mom, of course, is driving down in an hour or so. I am at work today. When more information and plans are known, one of us will be in touch.


I am very glad I stayed longer than I had planned when I visited her on Sunday.

This was a shock to come in to this morning. She had looked comparatively good on Sunday, and I was planning to be back on Saturday, and we were tentatively planning things into the following week. I would have guessed this would be 3-4 weeks from now.

I'm afraid this is not going to be a very productive day for me.
