With Grandma

Grandma. She passed away yesterday morning at 8:26am at 90 years of age.
February 3rd, 1920 – December 16th, 2011.

My Grandma lived an amazing life. Can you imagine being born in a house without electricity or running water, and going into town every 4 months to what it is today? Most people being a 2 car household, the internet, television, flight. Living through the Great Depression, being born at the end of the Industrial Revolution, living through World War 2, women winning the vote, the era of free love, King’s assassination, Kennedy’s assassination, hearing on the radio men walking on the moon, civil right movement and having an African American president, just to name a few.

Grammie left an incredible legacy. Her stories have shaped my life, her character has influenced mine, and her back scratches have punctuated my childhood with love and care.

I love you and I miss you. I’m heartbroken I wasn’t there to kiss you goodbye.
