Shayna Zeza Kin Grandma Anne always said to me. I always remember being told I called Grandma Anne, “Gaahh” because when I was a toddler I couldn’t pronounce and say and say grandma. I’ll never forget being dropped off at her house when I was in the first grade every Monday morning and she use to look after me, she made me breakfast oatmeal and/or eggs and she let me watch cartoons on the television. After school on Mondays she always waited for me to come off the bus then she would take me back to her house to look after me, we always winded up having dinner with her close friends Anne Leftkowitz, and Claire. Some Monday nights we went to The Chinese Kitchen together and we saw the owner Richard where I use to get an animal shaped balloon. It was also fun when Grandma Anne and I went to Bingo at St. Gabriel’s church on the Monday mornings when I stayed home sick, or when I was off from school. Grandma Anne taught me how to play many card games including War and Blackjack. I’ll never forget she taught me as I was a young child that yogurt can settle an upset stomach. Eventually time went on and I grew older and grandma grew older also, as I grew older we made trips to Atlantic City where she taught me to only play with the money that the house gives you. We went down with her friend Ed one year. A fun memory was, when we went to the Trump Taj in Atlantic City one year when it was Easter and we played a few games and got to eat lunch at the VIP club members section. She was the best, when I was feeling down she was always there. After my dad passed away she let me stay over so she can keep me company and spend time with me. She hated to see me cry after my dad passed away and she always comforted me. When my fiancée Kimberly was alive we use to go with grandma to Breakfast at Moms Golden Griddle. My fiancée adored grandma Anne so much and when I lost
my fiancée Kim, I couldn’t tell grandma because it would devastate her. I’ll always love and remember Grandma Anne.
