My condolences to you and your family on the passing of your Mom. It is never easy to lose a parent, no matter your age. I pray for your peace and comfort as you continue your life journey without your Mom's earthly presence.
We send our sincere condolences to Marge's family.... I remember her and my Mom going to antique sales, her helping my mother cook for our wedding, her beautiful hand made quilts, and her quiet, lovely smile. I will remember her in my prayers. Rest in Peace Marge.
While I reflect on Grandma, it becomes apparent the memory of her is a lifetime of experiences, all of which bring a big smile to my face! As a toddler, my oldest memory is a truck and trailer under the Christmas tree, it was as if she knew I would someday drive a rig. As a young boy it was operating the fruit stand in front of her house on RT 104, with Grandma allowing me to keep all the profits. It was like she knew I could someday own a business. If that wasn't cool enough we took the Mustang to the store, are you kidding, Grandma has a Mustang?!?! It gets better. As a kid playing basketball, she always found time to get to a game. I would want to score for my Grandmother in the stands. Fishing? no problem, she has a camp up north with probably the best fishing in Upstate NY. "Tired of the snow Scott?" she would say, "You have a bed to stay in Florida" She always seemed to know what I enjoyed in life. Once Lisa and I started a family it became such a comfort to sit and talk about life, politics, family, working in a union, buying cars, you name it, whatever I was interested in it always seemed like Grandma wanted to talk about that. There was always food on the table, and a welcoming hug with a big smile at Grandma's house! I count it an absolute privilege to have had such a wonderful grandmother for my entire life, wow, what a blessing! With all my heart I say thanks to Grandma, I love you and look forward to seeing you again in heaven.
