I've felt guilty more than anything because I didn't get a chance to know my grandmother very well. But the things that I do know, and the memories I have with her are very, very special to me. When I was little, I used to get off the bus at her house in the afternoon. We'd talk and she'd play with my hair some, which I always loved. And I always wore headbands, she showed me how to make a flower out of Kleenex and attach it to my headband, which I absolutely loved to do. 💙 She let me "play" the piano (or maybe it was an organ?) In the house...and I use the term play very loosely. She always had the biggest heart, I remember there being so many cats around the house, all the time, and every one of them was spoiled rotten, those were her "babies". She also gave me some of the greatest gifts in the world. She raised two amazing boys. One, my Uncle Tim, introduced me to Kiss and Queen and also gave me another amazing cousin. And the other, my daddy. A man that is hilarious, and opinionated and strong willed. And he also chose to stay in the life of a single mother, who had a very protective, stubborn brat of a child. He stayed and he showed that little girl what having a father means, and he gave her 2 of the greatest siblings anyone could ever hope for. For everything I didn't know about grandma, the gifts she gave me with my family, speak more for her than words ever can. I love you grandma and I hope you can see what an incredible job you did 💙
