This post is dedicated to the memory of my grandma who passed away Monday evening. While I lived with her, we would drink tea in some old tea cups. When she moved from her house to an apartment / retirement home, many things were passed along or sold so she could fit a house into a two bedroom apartment. This tea cup was passed on to me. If my memory is right, this belonged to her mother (my great grandma) at one time. It was made in Prussia which doesn’t even exist anymore.
When I think of my grandma, I don’t think of things. When I look at some things, I think of grandma (like this tea cup). Thinking about “what I want of grandma’s”, I only came up with one thing. I want a picture of my grandparents together. I’d like to write on the back their names, the dates they lived, and when they got married. Really I just want a picture to look at and spark happy memories.
As hard as this time has been, I know that she is at peace and no longer in pain. I like to think that she is now reunited with my grandpa and they are sailing around in a yacht that he’s built while waiting for her. I miss her terribly and even if it’s hard to believe right now, I know that the pain will lesson and it will get easier to live with. I am so happy that we got to spend the time that we did.
Dear Grandma Sue, I love you! Be sure to give Grandpa Dick a big hug from all of us!
