My grandmother went to stay with grandpa Valentine’s Day – February 14, 2014. Love endures. Back early in February I asked my dad if he would ride with me to visit grandma. Sure he replied. Grandma had taken a turn for the not too well and I knew if I wanted to see her, it should be soon. We headed out on Thursday morning, visiting with grandma early evening.
Her hair just done with her make up on, she was beautiful! We asked many questions, reminiscing of her and grandpa’s early years. She could recall the address of her home some 68 years past. We had a wonderful visit. That evening her wish came true- she went to sleep.
Bittersweet. At her funeral, I was blessed to spend time with family who live states apart. Some it had been years since I had seen them last. We shared laughs and tears. A time I will treasure.
