My mother calls me and often tells me to call her back as soon as possible. Often times it is nothing major, just wanting to say hi or ask how we are doing. I told her to let me know the importance of her calls and I will call her back accordingly. A call that is important doesn't require me to drop everything and call her. So this morning, at work, I miss a call and it goes to my voice mail and its my mom saying its an emergency.
Upon calling her back, I learn my grandmother, her mom, and my last grandmother has died unexpectedly today. Talk about a shock, everything else today seems pointless, very sober. I guess is a good thing, she was in a nursing home and had Alzheimer's Disease and hardly recongized us. Now she is in a better place and free of disease.
