My grandfather passed away this past December. He was relatively healthy so it took us by surprise that he had a heart attack and his health diminished so quickly. My grandfather has 11 children and 24 grandchildren spread across the world. The family members in Southern California scrambled to his bedside at the hospital. For those further away, we had little options. I was able to FaceTime while he was in the hospital but I had to get off the phone so that my brother in New York could FaceTime with him as well. That got me thinking that there should be a way for all of us to "be present" at the bedside of a dying family member.
