My grandmother recently passed away the day after my successful comprehensive exams. I was instantly devastated as it was unexpected. I was able to talk to her two hours before breathe her last. I was able to tell her how much I loved her and also, the news of my successful exams.

She had tears in her eyes upon hearing my voice and the news. She was happy and proud of me for sure.

As soon as I heard the news, we flew to her hometown in the south part of the country. It was not like one of those holiday invitations, but rather, a celebration of her life and her legacy for the woman who took care of me for more than twenty five years.
