Hapsy was seemingly Granny’s favorite child, and certainly the child she most longs to see in her dying moments. Hapsy died years previously, possibly as she gave birth to the baby that Granny sees her holding during one of her hallucinations. Granny later imagines Hapsy standing over her bed as she dies. She hopes to see Hapsy again after she passes.
