Edith Cecelia Nageotte Marley: Nov. 25, 1908 - May 9, 2007

My paternal grandmother died yesterday. I'm not good at expressing emotion. So I won't, except to say that I'll miss her.

Later,

3 people have spouted off:

Kyle and I saw her on the 6th. We were in Meadville to give custody of our cat over to my mom, and Edith enjoyed visiting with us and the cat, and told us some amusing stories about a cat she used to know. She was completely cognizant to the very end, not at all afraid of death. I think she was tired of her old body, and was just figuring out how to let go.

Everyone that learned something from her, even just a story, will continue her legacy. Since she is so well loved and respected, we will pass what we've learned from her to generations to come. In that way, she is immortal.

On one visit, I came in and she was watching Gunsmoke on TVLand. We talked about James Arness, and then classic TV/Movie actors in general, for probably over an hour.

It really didn't matter what the topic was. Spending time with her was always worthwhile. I wish I had had time to visit her more often.

Good memories help, but they also hurt, sometimes. May you recover more quickly than I did from my grandma's death.
