Grammy always had something baking or cooking and pretty much insisted on feeding you the second you entered her home. She was always feeding people, something my mother also got from her.
I remember once Grammy was on a team of ladies that made dinner for people including gravy I would have no idea how to do that. She was gentle and kind and I do not ever remember her having a harsh word or mean thing to say about another human being — ever! Her motto which she always installed in us grandkids was to just love each other.
She never understood war or fighting. The world could use a little more of that now more than ever. She called herself Angel Girl and always had an angel with her or on her somewhere as a pin, pendant or necklace. Her home was full of angels and photos of her family 3 daughters, 6 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren as well as 8 siblings and numerous nieces and nephews to which she was Auntie Stella.
We were her greatest accomplishments and her greatest joy. You can see all the photos on her walls above photo watching TV are all family pictures! I tried to make it a habit to call her weekly, sadly that is one of my greatest regrets. I said my final goodbye at the hospital but she was unable to respond by then and just squeezed my hand gently — so I knew she heard me and that I was there. She told me stories about her mother making bread for the railway workers and how she wanted the store made bread instead.
But she spoke to her daughters every night on the phone and her apartment walls were covered in photos of her family us.
Everyone loved Grammy, she touched many lives. All animals loved her, even grumpy old dogs that growled at everyone else would sit with their head on her lap so she could pat their head and they could take a nap together. This is a song she used to sing to all of us grandkids and her great-grandkids — this is a beautiful and haunting version, I think she would love it. Her husband, Vic, and her family were always her sunshine. Now she is with him to be young again and dance which she loved oh so much.
When the sun is shining, I know that Grammy is still my sunshine and is with me and will be always. She is greatly missed and the hole in my heart will be a long time in healing.
