May 11, 2019
She was the strongest woman I've ever known, guardian and protector to all of the family. Somehow she remembered everyone's birthday in the family without a calendar, she would make sure I would take her to the store a few weeks before so she had time to grab them a card and mail it in time for their birthday. And she would call everyone on their day of their birthday and be so excited to talk to them and wish them a happy birthday, it would be the highlight of her week to let her loved ones know how much she cared about them.
