susannaheloyse On Saturday Matt's spitfire of a grandma, who was 100!, died peacefully and surrounded by family. We were lucky enough to be with her Thursday and Friday, and to have time to say goodbye as she was dying. This weekend it felt appropriate to have a house full of family and then to celebrate Ruby's birthday because Esther loved to dance and loved to party! Thankful to have known her the last 20 years of her life. She was feisty til the end! 1d
