Goodbye, Ba Ngoai

She drifted away peacefully last night, surrounded by her family. We have not yet told Q and The Boy and are trying to figure out how to do that. I haven't yet figured out how to tell myself.

That's about all I can bring myself to say right now.

All the people that came in contact with Van knew what a beautiful, kind person she was.

Remember that death is a part of life too. Kids are stronger than we know and honesty is to be leaned on in times like this. Tears help the heart heal and kids need the opportunity to express their loss just as much as we old timers who have dealt with passing generations of loved ones do and did.
A few tears for Van. Love Dad

Hi, RM! So glad I'm able to post a comment, something I've been trying to do for several days. I'm so sorry for your loss. I think she's out there somewhere, and she and Madelyn Dunham are smiling together upon all of us.

I'm sorry for your loss. All the best for you & your lovely family. I am sure you will find a good way to share the news with your two little ones.
