loss

how many losses can we endure? how many lessons about the fragility of life are necessary for one three person family?

december 3rd, my amazing father-in-law died of lung cancer. not three weeks later, our daughter lucia died. we have been mourning for these losses, and now, i wake up to read that my grandmother, adela estrada lamboglia has died. hopefully, my mother was with her in a hospital in la chorrera, panama. she took a flight to be with her on friday. she left such a legacy on this earth--12 children, 49 grandchildren, 60 great-grandchildren and many more great great grandchildren...as my beautiful husband said, she left a big footprint by leaving so many little ones. i wish i could be with my family. there is a ritual for mourning this death. as they say, dios te bendiga, abuelita.
