"Whachacallit?"
Best times were when we could make Granma laugh so hard till she cried and would always exclaim "You're a nut!".

When I was a teenager I started calling her “Grandmamaaa-maamama” in a goofy voice. She would laugh every time. She’d know right away who it was when I called. I’ll miss that laugh. I loved when she’d take my sisters and I fishing when we were all little, I usually caught the most. She would always say, “Just be patient, they’ll come.” I’ll miss our conversations about my brown/black thumb, she said she had faith in me, and I’d reply with “Well at least you do. The plants sure don’t”, and we’d laugh. I will miss that laugh. I loved talking to her about bowling. She’d tell me she bowled a 300, and I would tell her I could barely break 100, she’d laugh. I will miss that laugh. I remember calling her one day and she was a little out of breath, me concerned asked, “Are you alright? What are doing?”, she replied with “Oh, I’m just trying to fixed this darn lawnmower, I’m replacing the fuel filter.”. She said it like it was no big thing, she was in her 70s at the time. I couldn’t believe it. We both laughed about it. I will miss that laugh. I admired her for being so strong willed, so independent, so stubborn, and her compassion. I will miss the joy in her voice whenever we spoke. I will miss that laugh. I will miss her laugh.

Grandmama's laughter made everything seem so normal. She helped keep me in the moment.

One of my favorite activities with grandma as a child: fishing. I’m so glad I was able to spend a summer trip in Connecticut with grandma, my mom, and my daughter a few years ago. This trip brought back the best memories and created new ones that my daughter will always cherish.

I loved grandma’s smile as she opened my gift to her for Christmas in 2016.
