Sadly last Friday we lost Jordi’s paternal grandmother to cancer. I’ve wanted to avoid writing this post, as if it weren’t true. The kids (as in Jordi and his siblings and now our kids) called her Pipita, a long-ago made up nick-name. Pipita was always ready to greet us with a warm smile and a hug. She was always asking about the kids and what they were up to and encouraging me in my photography work. She inspired us with her continued life-long thirst for knowledge, always asking us to help her with her english. She shared her specialties with us too, making clay ornaments with us and teaching me to make quesillo (flan-like dessert) and other spanish dishes. She will be sorely missed.

    Indeed she will be sorely missed. Thanks Jen. Her determination, endurance and love for life will remain with us for ever as a great example. She will be always in our hearts!!
