Happy 98th Birthday Granny

Journalism

Granny it’s hard to believe it’s your 98th birthday, I celebrate the memories in my head. You were on my side from birth, making unannounced house visits, questioning where I was and making sure I had clothes. You made my clothes until fifth grade, how did you find the time with all the hard work you did?

Times were so different, you woke up at 4:30 am to make Gramps fried eggs and toast, while he ate you made a fresh sandwich, fresh thermos of tea and a snack, walked to door and gave a peak on the lips. You were happy.

As I got older you started cleaning houses to make money for my school clothes. I knew you worked so hard but I never thanked you, you made many sacrifices so I could have the cool jeans in high school and the popular shoe of choice.

You were the beautiful sunshine, loving part of my life. I miss you desperately. I know you’re proud and love me. I included one of your favorite photos of me.

    • She was the greatest. They took me in at 14, a wild child on drugs. I loved them so much I could not disappoint them so I quit. They raised me and I like there were a generation skipped, I learned so much more than if it had been my parents.
