My Grandma Florence Bradwisch Olson passed away this morning, a little before 4am Central time. I was there talking to her for the last hour of her life, I hope she could tell I was there. She passed peacefully. Her husband of 67 years, my Grandpa Edwin Olson, preceded her in death back in January.
It's been a very long month and a longer year for my family. Thanks to everyone who has written or otherwise expressed support. And to everyone for being a bit patient when it comes to me and this old website.
Obviously, you can read more details of this stuff if you want to in my online journal.
I posted pictures of my Grandma there in case you're curious. Her wedding photo, pictures of her and Grandpa with me and my brother when we were little, and a fairly recent picture of her.
