My Great Aunt Ruth Elizabeth Granaas, who was 100 years old, passed away recently. She was an amazing woman and had a mind that was just as sharp as yours or mine even until the very end of her life. It may seem strange to be so surprised at her passing, but if you knew her, her tenacity for life and love of her family made it seem like she was never going to be gone. I'm glad I had the opportunity to get to know her better these last couple years.
This was a sketch I had offhandedly done of her last Easter,
I didn't realize it was my last chance to ever draw her again.
Rest in Peace.
