Today, we laid my grandmother to rest.
She went peacefully in her sleep, which brings some comfort to our family.
I never got to know her very well, but she was a true matriarch of our family, and I see her in my mom and my aunts, in myself and my cousins.
May you be resting in peace, with 姥爷.
Today would have been my grandpa’s 86th birthday.
He passed peacefully 14 days ago. Because of the current circumstances with the coronavirus, there will be no funeral.
I had started to feel a bit numb after a few weeks of self-quarantine, but his passing brought on a surge of emotions, primarily grief and guilt.
May you be resting in peace, with Grandma.
