My grandmother, Eileen Rose Branigan Smith, died today. I don’t remember right now what year she was born but I think she was in her early 90s. She was an amazing person and I miss her immensely. Of all my family back in Nebraska, she and I were the closest. The funeral will most likely be on Friday so I’m flying out on Thursday. It’s just so weird that my mom and grandmother died a year and a half apart. This is a photo I took of Grandma Smith in 2002.
