I remember... by Adam Bacheller I have many fond memories of my Grandma and wish to share a few with you now. I remember that my Grandma knew someone from Harley Davidson and did not miss an opportunity to share this story with any Harley owner she met when given the chance. I remember that my Grandma helped me to see the world and nature, hiking over path and trail in Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, Banff and the Calgary Stampede to name a few, when I was 10 years old. I remember that my Grandma pronounced the Florida city as Miamah and I would try to figure out where that second "a" came from and where the second "i" went. I remember travelling, on many occasions to Grandma and Grandpa's house and Grandma would push around her Bissell broom and serve frozen waffles, cooked of course, for breakfast on Sunday. I remember going to church with Grandma and always finding a church on Sunday if we were travelling. And, I remember the last time I saw my Grandma, her memory and health deteriorating but a smile on her face as we entered the room. I remember many things about my Grandma and although she has gone to heaven, the memories I have allow her to live on in me.

    I was 19 when I became part of Grandma Harrison's family , but even so, she and Grandpa Harrison welcomed me into the family with open arms. She was very caring and a loving women and I enjoyed visting with her and listening to all the stories she would share. After Grandpa Harrison passed, she did not slow down, she would get into her RV (Airstream of course) and travel any time she could. She really enjoyed being with people and loved camping and nature. I do remember during her travels she made a special point to travel up to Alabama to be here for Madisen's (granddaughter) 2nd birthday. That really meant a lot to me and she of course went to church on Saturday to our local Catholic church. She was very dedicated to Christ and loving women, whom I had the honor to know and love. We will miss you Grandma. Be at peace. We will miss you, with love from Shane, Karen, Shelby and Madisen.
