1. She's almost 70, but she's the most content person I know.
    So I didn't get it at first.
  2. She's healthy but her friends and siblings are not.
  3. Her older sister almost died a couple of months ago.
    And she's depressed every time she visits her. Which is often.
  4. Her best friend (my godmother) has cancer.
    And she's in the hospital and my grandmother hates to see her that way. She keeps bringing up how she was fine just a couple of weeks ago.
  5. Another one of her best friends died this morning.
    I found her downstairs just chopping vegetables. She told me she was just thinking.
  6. I wonder what she's thinking about.
  7. I imagine that she's wondering about how long she has left.
  8. And even though she is constantly surrounded by family, youth and love
    I know losing her friends is incredibly hard and I can see the toll it's taking on her.
  9. I know she'll be okay.
    I just wish there was some way for me to ease her pain.
