"Granny" as she insisted everyone call her was 89 years old at the end of her life; she outlived a husband and two sons and left behind three daughters, four grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and countless other people who knew and loved her.
I wanted to include this photo of her, her sister and two of her brothers. Granny is the little girl on the right.
They knew hardship and poverty as well as love, discipline and hope. I hope to someday be as strong and as good a person as she was.
Rest easy Granny. I'll see you someday and we'll rejoice together in Heaven.
