Grandma Mary


My Grandma Mary went to heaven today. I know she’s in a better place. I know I’m lucky to have had my her well into my 30s. I’m still selfishly and deeply sad she won’t physically be here with us any longer.

I want to always remember when I was young how I was fascinated by the way she perfectly buttered my toast.

I want to always remember when I was a little bit older how she always took us swimming in the summer time.

I want to always remember in high school when she visited how we would stay up late into the night playing games of spades. I KNOW I’ll never forget the time I called her out when I saw her cheating. When nobody was looking she gave me the bird and then sweetly denied it.

I want to always remember when I’d come home from college and we would talk about relationships and religion and the past and the future and everything and nothing.

I want to always remember that she not only knew my kids but she actually got them, who they are.

I will always remember Grandma Mary.

  3. Oops… Its really great that you have so many wonderful memories of your time together. I suggest writing yourself “blog post” of all those memories so you never forget! I did this recently and my few thoughts have turned into a small book to myself…

  4. Love this Lacey– So dear that you have your list of remembrances. She sounds like the kindest fun sot of grandmother. When my Dad died a few years back, I sat down and wrote pages of things I wanted to remember about him. Don’t want those memories to fade– I read them now and then. I know she must have adored you– hugs hugs from here friend. xox
