That Unforgettable Day
I will always remember New Year's Day in 2001.
Early that morning my sister and I received a phone call.
We were told Grandma had fainted and was being taken to a hospital in Taichung.
The moment we received the message, my uncle drove us to the hospital as fast as he could.
It was a long iournev from Taipei.
While we were on the road, holiday bumper-to-bumper traffic slowed us down to a snail's pace and a car accident the previous day made the congestion worse.
Consequently, we got stuck for more than six hours on the highway.
We were worried about Grandma the whole time.
As soon as we arrived at the Taian Rest Area, we anxiously phoned home.
However, Grandma had died of heart failure just half an hour before we called.
