Sad

Sanna suddenly collapsed yesterday, Nov 13 Thursday, in the front lawn of her house, and died. She was with her younger daughter, Chenga. Her doctors believe that it was a heart attack. She did have known cardiac problems. The family is mourning. We will be posting dates for memorial services in both Ithaca and Syracuse here soon.

This was unexpected, since Sanna was slowly continuing to improve. She spent her last weekend at a Nepali festival in Ithaca, and she told me that it was a lot of fun. She also had a lovely visit on Monday with friends from childhood.

We all miss Sanna very much and I will share some old photos of her here soon.

Thank you for all your sympathy and support.

Sanna was my big sister of whom I always looked up to as a role model and for guidance. I still cannot fully come to terms that Sanna has passed away. But, as truth has it, this time she will not be coming back. I wish I could at least share all my cherished memories of Sanna with you. However for now, I’ll limit myself to the night before she died. I was lucky enough to be with her that night. Looking back, I noticed that she was beginning to take initiatives, such as making decisions for herself or her doing things without instruction. Keep in mind that this specific behavior was a big step forward after recovering from this form of tumor and the traumatic brain surgery. Although she told me that she could not sleep well the night before, she seemed alert – more than me. We had a conversation about many things while she was doing housework. My last recollection that night was when I was about to go to sleep, I heard her talking on the phone with our mother.

Looking back that night and considering the progress she was making with regards to beating the meningioma, I had high hopes that I would see her in full or near full health soon. I keep telling myself she must be in a better place.

As Sanna’s baby brother, I am now left with her memories. She is still my role model, and I can still search my memories for guidance and support. When I think of her I think of determination, enduring, and courageous. I hope that you can see her in this way as well. Thank you again.

  1. Hey honey, welcome back. Mills is a sad case and so desperate to stay in the headlines. I really feel like yelling at her “take your GD milions and go away!”

  2. You have a real ability for writing unique content. I like how you think and the way you represent your views in this article. I agree with your way of thinking. Thank you for sharing.

  3. That’s what worries me Anerje the fact that Leicester is only in interested in raking in the shekels – they couldn’t give a monkey’s about Richard himselfAnd how do you think they’re going to rake in those shekels – by portraying Richard as a good king much maligned? You should hear what gets trotted out in the Tower. Enough to make any self-respecting Ricardian demand their money back.You really think that any self respecting Ricardian would want Richard to be buried anywhere but York or for that matter even be seen dead in Leicester? Oh puh-leeeeeeeeease.

  6. À la base, si tu as encore trouver personne qui s’intéresse a toi et que tu trouve intéressant sur le 7 milliard de personnes qu’on est sur terre, c’est que oui tu as probablement un problème! Comme plusieurs d’ailleur. Ce n’est pas seulement une question de circonstance…

  7. Ron – You are so kind to re-post. I am definitely a better and more well-rounded person because of the various journeys I have taken. Some paths were successful, the others major learning experiences. It took me awhile to turn it around and so happy I did. Happy to share Giants’ Fever!Best,Allison

  8. Hi Martin!Schöner Podcast!!!! Zu MacFusion hätte ich eine Frage: SSH und FTP funktionieren toll, nur mit dem NTFS hab ich Probleme. Find nicht den richtigen Download link, nur die Linux-Sachen. Muss ich das “per Hand” kompilieren?! Vielleicht hast ja mal kurz Zeit mir zu antworten!GLG aus ATJoerg

  9. with a short note to Ryan Boren: It’s not you or your fault, Ryan. You just happen to have posted the relevant entry to my rant in your blog, and the comment submission form there has some kind of unfounded hatred

  10. Comme toutes les aures, j’adore Nadia, elle me fait beaucoup riire. Dommage que Daphné parte, j’espère que, l’an prochain, vous vous amuserez autant qu’avec elle. Je la regarde depuis le début et j’ai aimé les présentatrices, mais c’est Daphné que je préfère. Nadia continuez ainsi, j’aime beaucoup.

  11. That was the most useful widget i have ever had. Can you help me please? I have a woman’s magazine blog and i installed your widget. The problem is that i want to exlude some posts like fashion 2011 or swimwears 2011 because they are not useful any more. How can i exclude some posts from this amazing random posts widget? (Sorry about my english. It is not my mother language)

  12. This looks wonderful and sounds even more so. Quick question – do you have a internet source for the Dufor's Puff Pastry?(all my local grocery stores carry Pepperidge Farm and there is no butter in them. Haven't been able to make the quick puff pastry recipe so I've been avoiding Napoleons, etc.I'm in Washington State.

  14. Babyhui is not (yet) supported, the vcf mapping is using regular CC mode (I think it was the mode BCF was shipped with, and you can change to it by holding top left button down on power-on)

  15. Cary ALWAYS tells the women to “splurge” on a blowout and mani/pedi. In Cary’s world there are no carefree curls or giving YOURSELF a manicure before a date or event.

  16. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or advice. Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article. I want to read even more things about it!

  17. Why would this be deleted? It has to be approved before it is posted. So, I don’t think that will happen. Sounds like a somewhat common problem, unfortunately. These doctors are not alone. Do you have any links or articles about the situation. I would be interested to read about it.

  18. We are getting married in less than 4 months and are doing this already! Budgeting is a necessary evil. It confronts you with reality. Instead of envelopes we use jars but it’s the same system. In the beginning of the month we sit down together and put everything in a spreadsheet. Good luck to you!

  19. Wow!! Are you ever popular, over 165 responses in less than an hour. Guess your hard work at tutorials & blog candy is paying off. Great work!!! Keep em coming.

  20. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  21. Obrigado pela resposta Magnun.Este sda1 é aquela reserva de 100mb que o windows cria, não teria como instalar o arch alí. Tenho o seguinte esquema: sda1 (reserva 100mb do windows)sda2 (win7)sda3 (swap)sda4 sda5 ( root ) sda6 ( /home ) Vou tentar ler a documentação do Grub novamente.O Arch já está instalado com GRUB2 (em um VM simulando minhas partições do notebook)

  22. If I drove all the way there by two, would there still be a chance to get tickets? And is it outside or inside? Wouldn’t want my kids to get too hot. If they’re allowed to stand with me while I donate? 🙂

  23. partenopeo,ti chiedo solo una piccola cortesia e so che puoi farmelanon definirmi più “anti” qualcuno:non lo sono mai stato nella mia vita e non lo sarò mai con nessuno, perchè non fa parte del mio stile e della mia educazione.e quanto ai partiti…anche quelli virtuali… lassamo perde !grazieSanto però si tropp serio ‘o frat……va buò se questo ti fa sentire meglio sarà fatto… cià!

  24. After examine a few of the blog posts in your website now, and I really like your method of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark web site record and will probably be checking again soon. Pls take a look at my website online as effectively and let me know what you think.

  25. It looks cool but no one needs this. It’s heavy. It’s expensive. It’s not compatible with a dynamo power supply. May be the visibility is good. But I can’t imagine, that this system will illuminate a dark road outside a town enough to ride safe at a faster speed.

  26. You are mistaking Archonix.Almost all Jews (in Israel or the world) are of European descent.Even Sephardic Jews of Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, and Iran, are descendents of Jewish refugees from the Spanish Inquisition.

  27. Hah! Außerdem ist es besonders sinnvoll, vor dem RTW herzuschleichen und dann sogar noch langsamer zu werden… (gesehen auf Rügen) oder eben der Klassiker des “Flüchtens” und erst ganz am Ende mal rechts-Ranfahrens. Die Leute sind einfach zu dämlich!!

  28. Wenigstens hat er den Titel der bereits vorhandenen Arbeit umgedreht. Hahahahaha! Macht man aus “Coca Cola” ein “Colacoca” ist es ja wurscht, oder? Hahahaha! Nicht nur peinlich und kopiert, sondern auch urheberrechtlich völlig im Abseits.

  29. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks

  30. Gracias Alexis, he visto los vídeos que subieron y los que estàn en el blog de Enrisco que subió Bauta, se les ve alegres y con humor, Paquito con el clarinete fue genial y hasta había un chekeré en la manif, las imàgenes son muy buenas de esperanza, Felicidades !!!

  31. Thank you so much for all the great information you have shared with us all! I found your blog/website a few years ago when my journey into learning everything I could about guns began, and I found it INVALUABLE. My husband bought me your book (though we are both reading it!) and I would LOVE to incorporate it into a Women’s Only class I’m putting together. Will you allow me to reference to portions of your book (of course I would point out that it is coming from your book)? Is it possible to buy this book in bulk (getting a special bulk rate)?

  32. Oh wow, wow, wow! Ich bin verliebt! Ist der super! Wunderschön und megacool! Ich würde mich rießig freuen und drücke gaaanz fest die Daumen!Dir einen schönen zweiten Advent und vielen vielen Dank für diesen tollen Kalender!Alles Liebe Hanna

  33. The media is really trying hard to spin Biden as being “too much.” It is OBVIOUS that Biden not only won the debate, but also, Ryan is in WAY over his head.

  37. Lady Gaga cried for a few days when she learned how just how nicely her latest album sold. The singer was incapable to keep her feelings in check due to the fact she was so overpowered because of the good response to her LP ‘Born This Way’ the instant it was introduced last month.

  38. Thanks for stopping by my place today, Paula. I love the name of you blog! My own sister is my best friend in the whole wide world. ♥ Funny your pups’ names are Sugar and Baby, I have two cats and their names are Sugar and Baby too!

  41. Cheerios dust must be currently running the world into the ground, from the latest unofficial reports. No wonder Cheerios makes four ounces of oats so expensive.

  46. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
