To know "Tiny Grandma" was to sure love her. She loved to share all of her knowledge of birds with you. She could mesmerize you with their tales. Amazing.
She saved my life. I was having a lot of trouble with my left shoulder and couldn' find out what was wrong with me. She put her index finger up and started shaking it, yes she did. She said, Vikki, sometimes you have to let them have it and not take it. Sitting in the NEW doctor's office, as the nurse was taking my blood pressure, I saw that finger go up and heard every word she said. Oh boy, my finger came up and I started to cry and I told her, I am not leaving here until I am outta pain or know what is wrong with me!! The nurse smiled at me and said that is hard today because he does not do surgery on Wednesdays. lol
He had me go to Bixby Medical Center and did a procedure. He told my family and my bloodwork was all off the charts, get it checked right away. Cancer it was.

I lost my grandma in my early twenties. Tiny always treated me with love every time I saw her. My favorite memory is I was with Karen & her family I believe for New Year's Eve and we were watching Howie Mandel & Tiny kept saying how he wasn't funny. Gonna miss you Tiny 😢
