early a.m. phone call

grandpa's gone. according to daddy, he went peacefully around 4 a.m. this morning. the current theory is that he was hanging on long enough to make it back to his apartment. (personally, i just think it's a little freaky....i said several times that i figured he'd go today....because, as i recall (and will have to double-check) our other grandpa died the day after my birthday.)

okay, had to get that out....time for a little more sleep.

p.s.- a pet peeve: on this computer, the little windows for date and time don't show up. argh.
