My grandmother (Grammie) passed away a week ago today, mother's day. She was a generous and kind woman who left behind a family who loved her dearly. She had three children (mom mom and two aunts), three granddaughters, one grandson, their spouses, and a local community in Pennsylvania that will miss her. It was sad to hear that she passed but also a relief. She had been struggling with Parkinson's and dementia which made her last months a struggle to even communicate. She had told her family she was ready to join my grandfather in heaven and we are happy that her physical struggle is over.
On Tuesday I baked Grammie's cinnamon buns in her memory. I packaged them to bring up to Pennsylvania and share with my family. We also made recipe cards to set out at her funeral. Jay and I flew up for her funeral on Wednesday and stayed through last night. We actually had a great time having dinner, laughing, and reminiscing with my family. My grandmother will be missed by her family and friends but we have great memories of her life, well lived.
