Fio's brother gave her a small box of greeting cards that their mother had received when her own mother died. A leather remembrance book lay on top of the pile, and reading through it made Fio think about not only her maternal grandmother, but her paternal grandmother and maternal great-grandmother, all of whom  died when Fio was a young child. Curious, she Googled her foremothers' death dates and learned that her great-grandmother had died on March 2 (when Fio was two), that her father's mother had died on March 11 (when Fio was three), and mother's mother had died on March 22 (when Fio was four).  

Does Fio see a pattern here?
