My grandmother Esther, whose experience with osteoporosis and bisphosphonate medication I had shared in a recent SharePost, passed away Thursday. She was 94 and had heart disease. She had previously suffered from a number of osteoporosis-related fractures, including her hip and compression fractures in her spine, but she always fought back valiantly and was able to live a full life, staying in her own home until her final days. Her love and kindness were an inspiration to everyone around her, and I could only hope to be as gracious as I age.
