Verna

While Steven and I were in Switzerland, our Great-Aunt Verna passed away. While her death wasn't a surprise (she had terminal cancer), we all still miss my grandmother's only sibling. Here's a picture from about 30 years ago of Verna taking a picture of myself and my cousin Trudy. Verna's big smile? That was really the expression I remember most of my aunt.

She did smile a lot, even during my visits to her in the care center. She always loved a good joke! So fun to see you in Switzerland.

she looks like a really fun person.

We had a grandfather die over conference weekend. Makes you think about mortality. I'm starting to be a little more OK with the idea of death as it starts to happen to those close to me...
