2. My condolences for your loss..

31 years ago, 4 days after Freddie Mercury died, I lost my last remaining Grandparent.

40 minutes before the Macy's Parade was set to start where my then 16 year old Daughter was in NYC set to participate, my Maternal Grandpap Manuel Lopez died at the age of 85. He was so excited that his Great-Granddaughter was going to be in the parade. That was Thanksgiving Day that year and I had to get ready to go to work at the Hotel right across the street from the Big hospital in Rochester.

Losing my Grandpap that day, I had the TV on in every room I cleaned so that I could catch a glimpse of my daughter. That Saturday, I flew out to Pennsylvania to meet up with my Mother and attend the funeral.

The Holidays can be tough. May you find comfort in the memories you have.
