Alas

My dad's stepmom ("my step-grandmother" sounds weird) has passed away. I always referred to her as "Aunt Kay." Presumably she will be buried in Herndon next to my grandfather.

I hadn't seen her for many years; pretty much since she moved down to Rappahannock. She was in a retirement home and my dad's sister Iris has been taking care of her; apparently she's been pretty much senile for a few years now. It's been hard on Aunt Iris; Aunt Kay was mostly nice but had a vicious streak in her, and as she got dotty, the nice started to fade away and the vicious became more prominent.

I don't know how my dad's taking it; he's had his own health to deal with lately after he took a fall a few weeks ago.

Mortality sucks. :P
