My beautiful Grandmother, I will always remember your warmth, your big smile and the way in which you carried yourself. I love your upstairs christmas tree, so elegant and classy, and I love your downstairs christmas tree, full of bright colors and whimsey. Those memories are cherished, I'm so grateful I got to grow up around you. Thank you for being you. I love you, Blythe
