well, no grams left
...aside from my hubby's gram that i do think of as my own after close to 20 years! But a sad note, my mom called me the other day and let me know my aunt (dads sister) had left her a message on her machine. i knew right away why she called as she has not called or anything since i did not sign over the rights to my dad's estate to her, somehow she felt like everything was meant to go to her???? I don't know.
So....in the last 3 years we have had both my grandmothers, my grandfather, my step-grandfather, my husbands aunt...i think that is all....pass away. So many years with no family members leaving and then all at once, or so it feels. This was the gram that sadly i had not been too close with these past dozen years due to situations of both distance and with my dad. But she was a classy lady who lived in white shorts (with pantyhose) and always had her hair colored black and done just so (she was a former cosmetologist) and bright red lipstick. She loved big chunky silver and turquoise jewelry, and made the best vegetable dishes from her garden...and she loved her horses! RIP gram, may you have peace and be safe with daddy and gramps.
