Uncle Harrison just called with some bad news: my maternal grandmother Pi-Tan Yang has passed away at 84 years old. The official cause of death was pneumonia, although heart disease was a contributing factor. To be honest, this wasn't totally unexpected because she had been very ill for the past few weeks.
Pi-Tan was one of those special people who have touched our lives. I'll never forget her gentle spirit and non-confrontational attitude. Visiting her and Grandpa on weekends will always be among my favorite memories.
Though my grandmother's passing wasn't a complete surprise, the news still hit me pretty hard. There are difficult days ahead, especially for Mom. Your support and prayers are truly appreciated. Rest in peace, Grandma. You'll be greatly missed. :-(
In other news...
On a more positive note, my cousin Cathy just turned 12 years old. I'd like to wish her a happy birthday and hope this news won't be too hard on her.
