Sharing the Good & Bad Moments

As I've commented in the past, our Treo is often our most constant (if not trusted) companion and I have been lucky enough to share mostly fun, interesting and exciting times with my Treo in the past year. 

However, since my Treo tags along on a daily and permanent basis the odds are naturally that some not so happy moments are bound to be part of the relationship as well.  Unfortunately this past week has been one such moment filled with sadness and sorrow as my grandmother peacefully passed away at 92.

It's difficult to think how my Treo could have any relevance whatsoever at times like these but the calls, voice mails, emails and SMS' arriving from friends and family via my Treo are a reminder that no matter what the situation it is the device that keeps me connected to my world.

At the same time, I keep a very fond memory of my grandmother and my Treo during these past holidays.  I had purposely avoided showing her my Treo thinking that she would immediately dismiss it as some ugly, complicated, technobabble gadget.  However, as I listened to her excitement about my Dad's iPod (she wanted one) I built the courage to pull out my Treo and ran her through a demo.  To my delight she was utterly amazed and her wonderment was palpable.  Thereafter my Treo became 'persona grata' in the house meaning that I could leave it in plain sight without the risk of hearing "What's this ugly thing doing in my living room?". 

Thanks for approving Granny (among many, many other things).

Treonauts salute all grandparents...

I'm sorry for your loss.

I'm glad she was surrounded by family at the end.

I rememeber years ago before my Grandmother passing how amazed she was by my old Palm III. I'm sure privately, she dismissed it as a new fangled doohickey but was amazed at how fast the world around her was advancing.

I'm sure she would have wanted one of Dick Tracy's wrist computers. :)

In this day and age when people have abandoned the nuclear family in search of God knows what, it was only refreshing and reassuring to know that there are few who still recognize the value of a granda whom I am sure without her, you will never be here in the first place. Even with your supposedly hectic schedule of keeping us all in the Treo family abreast of the latest hi-tech, you still have time to be very homely afterall even to a grandma. Where ever she is now, I pray that she will get eternal repose. Why not? She gave the world her best --- a model of a son. Accept my condolence
