It's a sad day in here, as Mimi, our family matriarch sometimes referred to here
as GrandmaBlue died yesterday. Before her mental faculties started to fade over
the past few years she was quite the sharp-minded and sharp-witted woman with
remarkable degrees of old-world fastidiousness and frugality. She reached a ripe
old age and managed to avoid serious illness or any such thing along the way, so
we feel grateful for that as we let her go, but she will certainly be missed.
