|My dad's mom died Friday evening at about 9pm California time.|
She was a hell of a woman. She bore and raised thirteen children - eleven of them boys. She was widowed with kids still in her home and still managed to raise a good family. Today I'll look at a family with six children and wonder how the parents do it.
The last I saw of my Grandma Swenson was in a video that my parents shot when they went out to California with my brother a month or two ago just after her birthday. They mentioned she was a little absent at times, but during certain periods was much more aware of her surroundings. She certainly seemed to know what was happening around her in the video.
Rest easy, grandma.
