Ann Elizabeth Mitchell passed away yesterday at 11:30am, about two hours before I was able to arrive. She was my maternal grandmother and one of my favorite people. She will be greatly missed. I loved her very much.
I'm comforted by the many wonderful memories I have of her, and by the fact that she knew I was on my way to see her. I talked to her Thursday evening and told her I loved her then. You don't often get to say your last words to someone are "I love you" (and their words back to you are), so I'm grateful this was one of those times.
My grandma was 86 years young.
