My earliest memory of my grandma was when I was around 3 years old, she liked to shop a lot, especially at thrift stores. She'd take me with her and my hand was too small to hold hers, so I held her pinky finger instead, and it didn't matter where she went, as long I was holding onto her pinky I would go anywhere with her. As I grew up I loved to stay the night at her house, she would always let me stay up late, and Grandpa would make us ice cream before bed while we watched TV. When I was 12 years old my dad walked out on my family leaving us with nothing and my grandparents stepped in and literally saved our lives. My mom who had no job history was suddenly working multiple jobs and Grandma would always do her best to look out for us, she would ensure we had food in the house, and called me multiple times to ensure I had the doors locked. In the sixth grade I called grandma from the nurses office at school to ask her to come pick me up - and even though grandma knew I was faking illness, she came anyway and brought me back to her house, we watched soap operas and she made lunch. On some school days she'd come pick me up in her car at the bus stop when it was 100 degrees out because she knew I'd get heat stroke - Grandma would be ready with drinks and snacks with the AC on.

When I look back at my memories of growing up, the times with my grandma were the most special and happiest times in my life. She was the most giving person I have ever known and she was always there for me.

10 days ago was my last phone call with her. We both knew the jig was almost up. We shared our most special memories of the times we had together, and Grandma remembered everything, from the pinky finger to the soap operas. She said to me " Sue Sue, when we get older, things change." As the conversation drew to a close, Grandma told me she loved me over and over again, she said it about 10 times and I said it back to her 10 times. "I love you Sue Sue", "I love you Grammy",
