Everybody has four Grandparents. When you are young, they spoil you rotten and are altogether more fun to hang out with than your parents. Then, as you grow older, they grow older. And then, you start to lose them. My paternal Grandmother, Dorothy (Dot) Ekelund, passed away Wednesday morning. She was 87 years old. She had been in poor health for a while, but no matter how 'ready' you are, you are never ready. I know I wasn't. I'm off to California for the weekend, to do what I couldn't do a year and a half ago. Be there.
