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.
