May 9, 1919- August 30, 2001
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and
until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand
I wanted to make this page in honor of my grandma, who passed away last August.
She was the sweetest, most generous person I have ever met, and as far as I could tell, she never felt sorry for herself or lost her faith in God. She was at church every Sunday morning at 9am, after watching mass on television as well. She was a very active person, had many friends, and enjoyed shopping and ordering things from the home shopping network (now you know where I got it from). I miss my grandma and think about her every day, but I know that she is in a better place now, with no more suffering. I feel she is with me all the time, and the things she used to say and do are very special memories that I have to think about whenever I am sad. She lived upstairs in her own little "apartment" in our house since we moved here around 1984, so I was lucky enough to grow up with a grandma around 24-7. I know that sometimes it was hard, which is the case when you see anyone for an extended period of time, but I now realize how lucky I was, and how glad I am that she was able to share in all of the many special events and activities in my life. Most people do not get that opportunity, and I am thankful every day that I did.
