Perhaps the most difficult of these events we learned about just this afternoon; Tim's grandmother, Yvette (Grammy) Roy, passed away (this morning on the East Coast). We hear that it was a peaceful passing surrounded by her loved ones. The news weighs heavily on our hearts, but she lived a long, full life and she will be remembered with love. In life, she was a successful business woman, an honest friend, a devoted wife, a caring mother, and a warm and loving grandmother. We are so glad that she had a chance to meet Eleanor, and that Eleanor could meet her. We will continue to share stories of her teaching Tim to drive, making crepes for her grandchildren at camp, and reminding us of the importance of making wise financial decisions. She was a powerful force in Tim's life, and I'm sure the lives of all her family, and she will be greatly missed.
Here's to a life long and well lived. Rest in peace, (great) Grammy Roy.
