I am sorry to have been gone for so long without updates. My grandmother had passed away and I had to fly back to the Canada for her funeral. She caught the flu and died very suddenly so it was a surprise for the family although we knew she was becoming weaker with old age.
The last time I went back to Montreal was a few years back to visit my grandma because she was ill at the time and I wanted to see her before she died. I am glad she went away without pain this time. She was the sweetest and most loving grandma one could ever ask for.
This trip was draining emotionally because I had to meet with so many relatives (on both sides of my family) and there was very little time. My company needed me back today so I only stayed five days, including the two traveling days so there were in fact only three days left to meet everyone.
I am happy to be home now. It was nice to see my relatives but emotions were flying high and I don't like to see people cry all the time. I thing it's important to remember the dead and to honor their memories but the living have to move on and continue life. :)
