I have many memories especially before the pandemic walking by myself, while Charlotte was in school. Sometimes I had a list of chores to do, but if I saw her on the porch I'd stop & sit a spell. Watch the buses & traffic. I'd count on someone watching the playground or a Halloween Parade or a July 4th Parade. The last one before the pandemic hit helping to put back her "bird watching chairs". To anyone whose lost an aunt or an grandmother I can sympathize, to anyone else I can empathize. I also know that the 1st special event whether it's Mother's Day or some other event in the family's life will be difficult. In this age of remote learning I will be in a math conference with Charlotte when the visitation is. I'll keep the garden free of Dandilion Wishes, and make sure garden statues can be seen & read when it's safe to do so. I'm sure she's with my grandmother and aunt Vedi & any others in Heaven.

Mama Vada was truly a great woman. She was a spitfire and gave me my love of puzzles. I didn’t get to see her much in the last 15 years but I always held a great respect for her. Living to 105 is proof of her strength and resilience. Praying for my kids and her family for the great loss!

Even though you were 105, you were still taken too soon Mawmaw. I spent every summer with you as a child when I stayed with Granny. You would wake me up super early to walk Buttons down by the River, we spent each afternoon watching Days of Our Lives, and in the evening you'd bring home your leftovers from senior citizens for me to eat. From every hot dog sale at the Malden Fire Dept to sitting on the porch with you and Kenny for hours just swinging, to hanging out with you up at mom's watching all the animals. I'll keep those memories and every other one with me forever. I love you mawmaw.
