Memories of Grandma
making little girls feel special
when we came to tea.
My Grandma Rose was an amazing woman, who made each of her grandchildren feel precious to her. It's a gift few have. This is one of the two photos I have of Grandma with me. My older sister Janie and I were having a tea party with Grandma. I cherish this photo.
Grandma survived the death of three sons in WWII, and her husband in a trucking accident, all within a few years. She was a strong woman who raised the remainder of her children as a single parent, including my mother, the baby of the family.
We lost Grandma when I was eight years old, but she has never left my mind. I've always considered her my guardian angel. If you look closely, you can almost see her wings.
