Rabbit, maybe this is something similar to your thing about Grace. Maybe if you were actually near her and her friend or whatever, you’d not be quite so scared, because you could SEE she was ok instead of just having photos and occasional interviews and stuff…you know? You’d also maybe be able to tell her your feelings as opposed to having all of that intensity bottled up inside (well, it’s been expressed to us and also to your friends and also to Grace in the letter, but you know what I mean, right? You’re not TALKING with her and stuff about it), which I think helps with anxiety about losing people…
Anyway, Grace isn’t that old, Rabbit. She’s only 69 (soon!) That’s young these days. 60 is the new 50. 70 is the new 60. My partner’s mother is 70 and she’s amazingly young-seeming. She LOOKS a bit older than Grace, but otherwise she seems really young.
(I was watching an interview with Grace from earlier this year, and I actually don’t think she’s fat either. It’s really just the neck/chin part, and everything else isn’t really big at all)
I’m really sorry about your grandpa, Rabbit. I noticed nobody else mentioned that. *hugs*
Re the chin/neck thing, I think that must be from the surgery she had a year or so ago…or maybe almost 2 years ago now.
She’s always had a bit of a chin (like me *groan* I want lipo but am too scared) but I saw the interview with Candice Bergin from 2006 and then interviews more recently, and it wasn’t really there in 2006. So yeah. She had to have a tracheotomy and stuff in that surgery…poor Grace. I’m so glad she’s ok.
You know? And because you’re so perceptive and empathetic and have psychic tendencies, maybe this makes it more difficult for you (than some other people) to accept death in the physical sense, because you feel strongly in the psychic/spiritual sense. Does that make sense?

Secondly, Grace didn’t actually have cancer at all. She had extreme Diverticulitis that she didn’t notice until major problems started happening, and she had to go to hospital and they operated on the blocked diverticula, which are like, part of the colon, and then for some reason they had to operate again that same day, and then her lungs shut down, liver, heart…I’m not sure why. I’m not 100% sure why they had to do the tracheotomy, but maybe something to do with her lungs stopping. So she was put into an induced coma for 3 months or something (Grace said this. I’m not sure it’s right. I hope it wasn’t that long) and yeah…although I don’t know why having a tracheotomy done would make your neck become swollen, but who knows.
Thirdly, I think Grace definitely it not comfortable with the chin…she hasn’t been for quite some time. Probably long before she began mentioning it outwardly. She kinda takes it in her stride, any stuff that she doesn’t like. “Her stride” being dealing with things using sarcasm, self-deprecating humour, and amusing bluntness.
