Albany John’s grandmother recently passed away. I’m not the best person to turn to during a time of crisis. I try, I really do, but I feel like I always end up saying the wrong thing. My mom also recently had some nerve wracking news and when I called her, I ended up making her cry just by calling. I’ve married a wonderful man who loves me in spite of this. Albany John always maintains a calm demeanor. He is the utter calm during a storm.
I’d only met Grandma a few times, but she was an absolutely lovely person to be around. She was quite the baker – such a wonderful baker. She lived with Albany John’s aunt, and so I decided to send them all a pound cake. Sometimes I think you don’t want to hear people saying “I’m so sorry” all the time because it could make you think about it even more and make you sadder, when everything is happening all at once in a big swirl. Sometimes I think sending food it also important.
(If anyone in the fam wants me to take this down, just let me know.)
