A Passage


I really tried to think of something terrific to write today, because overnight last night, my Gram went home to Heaven.

But as I sat here struggling for a fitting tribute, I realized that the best thing I could write about her would be that she loved us all. And we were very lucky to have that in our lives.

Till then, Gram. We love you very much.

  5. I too am very sorry.

    And, I smiled a bit to see you called her "Gram". That's what we called my Grandma...and you're the 2nd person I have seen do the same.
