A special Grandmother

One of BK's favorite phrases to me is "That looks like something my grandma would wear".  He says this lovingly of course as it is referring to his Grandma L.  And yes, while I am drawn to the style of the 50s and 60s and cardigans and comfort shoes, there is much more that just fashion style that I would choose when emulating Grandma L.  She was a woman of strength, loving and supportive of her family in all endeavors.  She was a communicator, writing many letters and cards each day.  She loved pretty things and entertaining her club ladies.  She was a record keeper, remembering birthdays and anniversaries.  She was a woman of faith, playing the piano and teaching Sunday school up till her last Sunday.  She was fearless, always up for trying something new, whether it was swimming in her 90s to learning to use a Kindle.  She was a great baker of cookies her grandchildren adored.  She was a teacher that touched many lives for the better.  She loved steadfastly, was wholeheartedly loved, and will be greatly missed.
