Last week my grandmother passed away. She was 97 years old.
My grandmother and I (taken in 1985 during our trip to Stanley, ID)
She influenced me greatly in her own quiet way. She seemed to always have that optimistic attitude that people often think doesn’t exist and was eager to laugh given any opportunity.
She exercised outside pretty much every day, taking long walks. She was a hard worker from day one too and was super thrifty.
(Her families first car, abt 1920)
She was constantly feeding and comforting you in some way or another and hated to let you leave her home without something in hand.
When she was ready to upgrade to a new car she gave me her old one. It was a beaut! An Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser station wagon with wood paneling!
I’m so grateful for the influence my grandmother had on me and I’ll never forget how she patted my hand and laughed with her cute little chuckle. And the way she puckered her lips to kiss me on the cheek goodbye.
Until we meet again Grandma Nita! I Love You!
