I loved sleeping at her house with my sister and cousins. She’d let us stay up as late as we wanted (even though I was always the first one to bed), leave the monopoly game on the dining room table all week, just so we could try & finish the game and made us whatever we wanted for breakfast. Her breakfast grilled cheese sandwiches were yummy! She never let on that she knew the reason the spare bedroom lamp broke was because I was jumping on the bed. And she would always brush my hair and let me brush hers any which way I wanted.
I got married in her church & when we bought our house she showed up with a shovel and helped me edge the garden beds. She called Vic “Richard” for the longest time & would laugh at herself every time she said it! I inherited the “washing gene” from her and always try to have my laundry caught up on December 31st, as she said it would never be if you started the New Year with dirty laundry. Living in the same town, I was recruited as her curtain changer. She liked them changed for Easter & Christmas. She loved flowers and would make an afghan in any color you wanted.
She was as proud of my boys as I was. We are so fortunate that they had the opportunity to know and love their great grandmother. Even as her memory faded, she knew who the boys were and that I belonged with them.
Love & Miss You Grandma
