I’ve been thinking a lot about Sondra and my grandpa this week. I think it all started when Sondra wasn’t at my sister’s bridal shower, and the realization that Ab won’t be able to dance with Grandpa at her wedding. I can’t pretend to imagine what that’s like for my sister, or my mom. Absolutely awful, I suppose. Sometimes, given enough contemplation and thought and silence, things just hit you.
