Today I was reading a NYT article about end of life care for Catholic sisters.I remembered my grandfather and the last 6 months of his life. August 17th marks a years anniversary of his death. In traditional Mexican cultures, we are supposed to commemorate his death with a “levantada of cruz”. I’m not entirely sure what that means but I assume it means setting up a memorial in his name. I miss him. I’m wondering if I should go to Mexico to pay him a visit. I missed his funeral in Mexico but accompanied him all the way till the end.
