My grandma, Carol Schanbacher died at around 8:30am this morning in California. She lost her second bout with cancer. Beyond the obvious feelings, what makes me feel terrible is that the plan was to call her to say goodbye sometime today. My mom made an emergency flight this morning but it seems that she was in the air while it happened. So I feel even worse for my mother... for both of her parents have passed away without her being able to be there.
