In a small casa in the middle of the jungle in Argentina, the phone rang. I knew the minute the Spanish operator said in very broken English that my little brother was on the line, it was the phone call I was dreading. Through the tears I said thank you in spanish and then there was my brother's voice. No one calls South America during someone's vacation with good news. My grandmom...my favorite grandmom in the entire world...the one who has made such an impact on my life...passed away yesterday. Yesterday...yesterday we were on top of the most beautiful falls in the world. Yesterday...yesterday we climbed to the bottom and got soaked in the falls. Did you see me wave to you grandmom? Did you see the most beautiful rainbow near the point? It was the closest thing I could get to heaven, grandmom...did you see me?...yesterday.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my grandmother about a month ago. :(

  2. Beautiful and right from your precious heart. I'm so sorry, sweetheart. She was special and one of a kind and you are very much like her. No more tears for her now. No more pain or difficulty breathing ever again. It has been about 36 hours for us now. In Heaven, it has been the blink of an eye. Imagine that...

    I love you and miss you,
