A Fine Lady



I will be spending time with family for the next couple of days honoring this fine lady known as my grandmother.  Born in 1916 she lived through so much history and set a wonderful example for all of us to follow.

I wrote a bit about her life, just a few months ago.  You can read about it here.  

Our dear Bird will truly be missed.

  1. Never knowing either of my grandmothers as they died young, I am so glad for you, Michelle, that you got to know your dear grandmother. She sounds like a grandmother I would dearly have loved to have known. You were blessed with her.

  4. Morning Michelle.
    sorry to hear of your loss. How blessed you are to have had such a loving grandmother to set a Godly example for her family. My grandmother died at an early age (44) as well as my grandfather. I do remember my other grandparents, but due to life circumstances, I did not see them very often...
    Thinking of your family at this time and saying a prayer that you all will find peace as you wrap yourselves in her memories.
    hugs

  18. Ah, aren't Grandmas just the best? And such a sweet coincidence -- such sweet music "Ashokan Farewell" playing while I read about your dear Granny.

  23. My condolences, Michelle. I'll bet 'Bird' had a heart of gold. She sure has seen many changes in the world - not all of them necessarily good.

    May she rest in peace, and may all of you be comforted in the many warm memories of her.

  34. It's a sad day when our grandmothers leave us. I still miss mine she would be 112 years old now. She lived to be 99. The good thing is they never really leave us.
