Enough with the death, please.

On the day before yesterday, my grandmother, Jean (McCrainor) Crawford died peacefully at home. That makes my Grandma, Mom, and Grandpa all in the last two years.

You can read a bit more about my Grandma in Leah’s post Grandma This Morning.

You can read about my Mom in a lot of places, especially her obituary.

And my Grandfather in his obituary.

I realize this is something I don’t have any control over, but I really think the family may be due for a break. In my twenties and thirties it was weddings I was going to. Now in my forties, it’s deaths. Again, I understand that what is meant to happen is meant to happen.

On another note, for anyone searching: There will be services for my Grandmother, Jean Crawford as follows:

June 2, 2011: 7pm (Rosary) at Saint Catherine Laboure Church
4026 Mt. Abraham; San Diego, CA 92111

June 3, 2011: 9:30am (Mass) at Saint Catherine Laboure Church
Reception following Mass in Church Hall

June 3, 2011: 1pm (Memorial Service) at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery
Point Loma, CA

it may be “what is meant to happen” but it doesn’t make it any less sad, or less of a loss…
