The other day, I was missing my grandmother who died in October. I put on a jade beaded necklace that I found among her things. I was the only one who wanted some of what was left of her jewelery. My mother has been sporting her large diamond for over 10 years and the smaller 1/2 carat one is in my engagement ring. In other words, she gave away the valuable stuff when she was alive.

I found the jade necklace in my jewelry box and put it on and Eric immediately began to tug on it. I asked him not to because it belonged to my grandmother. We then established that my grandmother was his grandma's mother and he figured out who she was. Then I said that she had died and that I missed her.

He said, "She will come back from the doctor and you will be very happy."

"I don't think so, baby. That's what it means when somebody dies, they can't come back."

He looked at me wisely. "No, she's just at the doctor and she will come back and everybody will be very happy."

I suppose she is back when I see Kaylee's face. She does look like her.

Having children makes you immortal.
