    My grandma died when I was 6 I never really got

    to know her. Barely ever saw her. I'm jealous of people that actually have grandparents that are alive.

    She Died When I Was 14

    My family is dysfunctional and have disowned me because my boyfriend is black. Grandma is the only one I think would have accepted him. Why did she have to die so young? Damn nicotine!

    I loved her lots. She was funny

    but confused and lived until the age of ninety, passing on a march afternoon. This was hard hitting news. At the eulogy only then I learned it was cancer. A born cowgirl, she loved horses but her family threw her away from the farm and into a retirement home. Goodbye, Ethel. I...

    My Lovely Grandmother

    I was closer to my Grandmother than I have ever been to my mother.   We lived with her and then she lived with us. She was very polite and very kind. And always very much the lady! Not "put on airs and graces", but just natural and elegant; a lady with a soft gentleness and...

    I Miss Her Wise Counsel

    My grandmother was among the last of her kind; a true lady. She was gentle in her words and actions. She rarely had a harsh word to say about anyone. Even when she chastised me, it usually ended or began with 'child' though I was 32 when she died. I remember when she told me that...

    My Grandma could sew like nobody's business.  She didn't do it for a living, but I suppose she could have.  She sewed most of her own clothes.  I'm not talking moo-moos here.  She made fabulous tailored suits for work, even her own blouses. Every Christmas...

    I never had the opportunity to see her properly,

    I was too young to remember anything about her. All I knew is that when I was about two years old, she was still alive and I had met her a lot of times. She died of lung cancer, and my older cousins used to tell me how it hurt them when she suddenly died. I had a picture where I...
