Brenda was my maternal grandmother. She lived with us for a time & also next door to us when I was growing up in Lake Erie. I have fond memories of her making us peanut butter & banana sandwiches. She told us during the summer months to steer clear of dragonflies because they would sew our eyes shut with their tales (old wives tale).

She had a white fluffy dog named 'Buddy' that she loved dearly, and that dog was always with grandma. She had this smile & laugh I will never forget, almost a melody but with a high dramatic end. She had hands soft as silk & I remember her making afghans & shawls. Grandma walked as closely to God as she possibly could & will be missed.

Grandmothers

Grandparents were special to us and so much a part of our growing up. I'm so glad that I was able to know my grandparents when I was young versus my younger siblings not knowing them at all or just barely.
