She left us on Valentine's day of all days. I don't think I have ever written about her before... but this is the woman who basically raised me. She only stood about 4'11, but was a giant of a woman to us. Greatest woman I have ever known. She was the most important single person in my life....surpassing all 3 parents. She was also my last and only true grandparent. I will try to write about her at some point.
I was hoping that before she left I would be able to show her that I made something out of myself...that her work wasn't in vain. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do that. That disappointment will follow me to my grave. Or haunt me into the grave.
