By Alex Dediashvili: My grandmother was bold and powerful, progressive and resilient. She was loud through action, ahead of her time. She was gentle and caring, always loving. There when you needed her, without a fault.

To us as children, she was adventurous and playful, always leading us down paths untraveled with loving determination. Wise and learned, she was an accomplished historian and librarian. She loved a good time, good music, and good cold pint of beer.

She was a simple woman who loved her family. It showed, we saw it clear as day. She was a fighter and took hardship in stride, always believing there was better times to come. She was right about this - her light lives on in all of us.

My grandmother helped to raise me into the man I am today. I am honored and blessed to have spent so much time with a truly incredible soul. I choose to remember her as she would want to be remembered - with a smile on her face and fire in her eyes.

Elvira Meloyeva Demetrashvili, thank you for all that you did for us, all the love that you gave us, all the memories we will forever hold dear. We love you so very much and hold solace in knowing you understood the love we have for you. Thank you, I love you.
