There are so many wonderful memories I have and things I loved about my Grandma…
The day she re-married Grandpa. She looked so beautiful with her beaded shawl and her blue bouquet! Grandpa couldn’t keep the mist out of his eyes.
Playing Shanghai Rummy with her and my aunts and uncles.
The way she’d always find ice skating on TV no matter what time of year.
When she used to come pick me up and drive me to work with her.
Her grabbing a red rose out of a vase and holding it between her teeth and dancing around.
Her John Wayne fandom and how she’d always let us take home two or three of his movies she’d taped off the Western channel.
The smell of her and her house.
Finding out she used to be great at the jitterbug.
Going to Chicago with her and Grandpa.
Playing Speed Scrabble with her at the ritzy hotel.
Designing Christmas and birthday cards for her and Grandpa to send to their friends.
The time she took us to see Into The West.
Playing the old Nintendo with her – and getting beat!
How football games were always white noise at her house.
The sparkle in her mischievous blue eyes.
