In the June 9 Empire is the obituary for my sister Carolyn Jean Simpson, who died in Missouri a week before.
Although she had cancer, and her death was not unexpected, when I got the call that she had passed, it was a very sad and emotional time for me. My 4 year old granddaughter Allison was sitting on my lap when the call came. Her Mother took her out of the room, but she came back a few minutes later, and said this:
“Grandma, are you sad?”
I said yes.
She said “Grandma I will paint your fingernails!”
