A Moment Of Silence

Yesterday my grandmother past away.  I haven't seen her in 2 years, which I kind of feel bad about but not terribly horrible.  She had dementia and once she sold her house and moved into a senior living apartments it was downhill from there.  She didn't stay long because the change didn't help her mental health.  
The home she moved into was a locked down unit.  The only time I visited her was Christmas Day and she thought I was her SIL.  It was a nice visit and the girls had fun.  When we went to leave there was no one at the desk and my grandmother was going to walk us out.  She couldn't go past the doors but there was no one at the desk to let us out.  The lobby was right there and all the residents were sitting there.  There was on gentleman who was laughing maniacally!  It was extremely uncomfortable and took forever for someone to show up to let us out and redirect my grandmother.  
I'm relieved she went quickly.
