She loves Elvis, the color purple and taking care of her family and friends. She has always been there for me. Always.
She encourages, supports and is right there to lend a hand when someone needs it, she would give away her last dollar without a second thought.
My grandmother brought four children into this world, provided for them and supported them. They gave her six grandchildren, who in turn gave her six great-grandchildren.
She has nurtured us, fostered our passions, and cheered us on. She always seems to have a smile on her face and nice words to say.
My Gram has made a lot of friends over the years. She’s understanding, compassionate and a great listener.
She has lost a lot too: family and friends, but she is resilient and never loses focus of what’s important in life. She keeps them close to her heart. She sees finding a penny face up as a sign from her first born, Dan. She sees getting a good parking spot as a sign from her brothers. She believes that my grandfather and my mom are her guardian angels.
She will be 80 years old this year.
My grandmother has seen a lot in her time on this planet, a lot has changed from 1935 to 2015.
I am thankful and grateful to have her in my life. I really don’t know where I would be without her.
She is my guardian angel, right here on Earth.
Thank you Gram for everything you have done and continue to do for all of us. You have made me the person I am today.
