A Sad Day
For just a brief moment I want to take a break from politics and the news to talk about something personal.
This morning, my 92 year old maternal Grandmother passed away. About 10 days ago she suffered a major stroke which paralyzed the entire left side of her body and it was complications from that stroke which finally resulted in her passing.
I will always remember my Grandmother as a social butterfly. She enjoyed being in a room filled with family, friends and neighbors, floating from one person to the next, certain to talk to everyone in the room. She was a lovely woman, dressed to the nines for every occasion and often in bold animal prints or colorful patterns. She had a passion for arts and crafts and spent much of the last few years painting and drawing.
Of all the memories I have of my Grandma, the one I treasure most is her reading Sesame Street’s “The Monster at the end of This Book” to me EVERY time I spent the night at their house. She did it with such passion and joy that I was more excited after my bedtime story that I was before it. Thank you Grandma.
Although I will miss her dearly, I know that she gave her life to the Lord and that I will see her again one day.
Rest In peace Grandma. I love you.
