My mom told me all about it, it’s quite amazing, very similar to the way Clare describes her mom’s passing in the prologue to Chronicles of the Bride. My grandmother was almost lifeless in her hospital bed for a few days before her passing. Then the one night, my mother decided to pray the Rosary out loud to my grandmother.
