The best thing about saying goodbye to someone we love (so much) is remembering them. We had many hours of laughing, crying and remembering her. She was an amazing woman. She shared so much of herself with everyone else and was never worried about herself.
She influenced me in so many ways. She gave me a love for old and worn items, and gave me a place in my heart that melts when seeing an old tattered barn or a vintage clutch. She was always accessorized with a pretty necklace and earrings, in a way that was effortless. She was famous in our memories for making waffles, quiche, and rice krispie treat bars with peanut butter, and cakes for all our birthdays among so many other things.
I will miss her so much. We were so blessed to have her with us all those years. I told my brother upon her passing that she is in heaven in the quilting circle and she is the head of the activities committee up there.
I Love you Grandma. I am so blessed to call you mine.
