I enjoyed reading Hyrum’s posting on Pain a few days ago. I thought I would offer the final correction. Last night Grandma died. She had had enough of the pain and finally it was over. The doctors kept getting mixed results as some things would get better and others would get worse. In the end she had developed a fever which had no detectable cause – she was just done.
I’m glad that her pain is over. I’m sure I will revisit this many times before I have fully integrated it into my life. It is nice to know what is of real value in this life. I am able to take joy in my family just as Grandma had taken joy in her family for her entire life.
