I think one of the things I enjoyed most with my grandmother was the breakfasts we had one-on-one. We’d talk about life, adventures, family, friends and everything in between. She always loved to remind us that she was a teacher for 37 1/2 years...because when the time was right, she had to get out of there! Her life was nothing short of an adventure. When she wasn’t hiking a mountain somewhere or taking care of her cabin in New York, she was visiting the ocean, a trail or a friend she’d made along the way. While losing a loved one is never easy, my grandmother’s life was way too beautiful not to celebrate. My family and I spent this weekend reminiscing and sharing memories, looking through photos, and doing a few of her favorite things, and she wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. Every time we said goodbye, my grandma would say, “Know that you’re loved.” Gram, I know. I know that I’m loved. You also are loved and you will be greatly missed. (from Amy Byrnes, granddaughter)
