Goodbye, Nana…

(L-R) The author and his grandmother Kathleen Ruth Warner many years ago.

I’m sad to report that my maternal grandmother, Kathleen Ruth Warner, died this week.

I’ll miss a lot of things about her. She used to send me clippings from her local paper anytime there was anything about Buddhism in it. She made me laugh watching her beloved Tampa Bay Devil Rays, whenever one of the players committed an error. (“Oh, you big dummy!”)

Goodbye, Nana. We love you…
