Softly and Peacefully

Dusty’s beloved grandmother died peacefully this morning. Not two hours after I woke up with an overwhelming urge to call and check on him (he’s in Oregon with her). We had a wonderful conversation about the afterlife and how Elaine was at peace with her final chapter.

She was a sweet woman who I vicariously loved through Dusty. She and I would always send messages to each other through him and her love for her very special grandson was obvious. His love for her exuded as well. He and I have very similar relationships with our maternal grandmothers. It’s one of the many things we bonded over when we first met.

I am overcome with an enormous feeling of helplessness at not being able to comfort him, his sisters, his mother, and his aunt Susie. All friends of mine and Howard’s. But I am thankful that she went out of this world, no doubt; surrounded by a family who loved and adored her. A family she helped create and must be so proud of. A family who has become a second one to me and to Howard.

Dusty, we love you all more than we can express.

Rest in Peace, Elaine.
