She passed away today, one month to the day to the 35th anniversary of my Grandfather's death.

I'm still processing it.

thank you to all for the hugs and good wishes.

My condolences to you. I lost a very close grandparent a year or so ago. Not a surprise given his great age, but I still haven't quite taken it on board.

Condolences Terri. We lost my mother in law just before Christmas (funeral was on December 22nd) after two months of a long decline, so I do empathise. Obviously she was on our doorstep, not thousands of miles away, but still, I understand about waiting for that phone call.

Thanks so much, everyone, for your kind words about Zazu's passing. He was a gentle sweetheart and I'll treasure our memories.

Terri, I'm so sorry and my condolences on the loss of your grandmother.
