A grandmothers love is fun, warm, and over all unconditional. It is a love that is painful to lose and a blessing to be able to feel. These days following after her passing have been uplifting. People from so many parts of her life have given encouraging words. They have also shared the everlasting memories that mam has left in their lives. Simple things such as her beautiful smile and laugh are cherisable memories now. Mam was a flame that no one could blow out. Keeping a flame lit at the house tonight in honor of her. I pray for us, her love ones.
