A Sad Day...

It is a sad day in the Hons Household. About 45 minutes ago I was on my way to work when my husband called and informed me his grandmother passed away. This is his father's (whom we live with) mom so it is really hitting us hard. She has been having some illness for the past year in which the doctors have been trying to figure out what is going on. They live in Iowa while their children live in Arizona and California so they have had to deal with the doctors via telephone. About a week ago she was hospitalized due to having a diabetic episode. They have been running tests ever since and determined she was well enough to go home. On the way home from the hospital she passed away, while his grandpa was driving her. She was 81(?) while he is 82(?). We don't know any more information at this time since it just happened today and we are all in shock.
She leaves behind 4 children, 12 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchilren(one of which is my munchkin). This previous summer my hubby, daughter, and I were blessed with being able to spend 4 days with her in her home while on a family road trip. She was always full of love, life, and compassion. She will be missed tremendously. As you can understand I will not be on too much in the next few days while this sinks in. Please keep our family in your prayers, especially my hubby, his mom, and his dad. Thank you.
