A Legacy to Remember

Grammy has been gone since 2016. But she will never ever be forgotten. Her legacy is undeniable. Here are just a handful of ways Iโ€™ll always remember her…
๐Ÿ’„ Makeup was tirelessly painted on her face daily. Tape provided the perfect non-invasive facelift. And her plethora of wigs would cover up the tape. She was magnificent!
๐Ÿ™‰ The woman said the most outrageous things that could make a sailor blush. Ask me for examples sometime. The inter webs would pull my post if I included them here. ๐Ÿ˜‚
๐Ÿ’‹Grammy adored her pet birds and showered them with baby talk and kisses leaving lipstick marks all over their little feathers.
๐ŸดIf she anticipated guests, sheโ€™d whip up two large lasagnas and a big olโ€™ sheet cake ready to overfeed her company.
๐ŸŒ™ Decades before her granddaughter began her career working with Buzz Aldrin, Grammyโ€™s telescope lived in her living room and sheโ€™d share her solar system wisdom with anyone who would listen.
๐Ÿคช More than anyone else I know, she was silly and playful in a way that just made everyone in her presence feel more alive.
๐ŸŽจ She was passionate about art and always willing to patiently teach me how to draw and paint before generously packing up a box full of her supplies for me to take home.
๐Ÿ’ŒWithout fail, her cards and letters had the message โ€œGod bless the mail carriersโ€ written on the envelopes. She cared about everyone.
๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธFrom my 17-year-old prom date to every waiter we ever had to the chaplain at her death bed, Grammy shamelessly flirted with every man she encountered.
๐Ÿ›Never would you leave her home without bags full of possessions that she so selflessly gave away, sometimes taken right off her wall or back.
๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ A devout Catholic, she loved the church like no other. Her commitment and devotion was a true inspiration.
๐ŸŽ‰No birthday present was coveted by her loving family more than hearing her hilarious birthday rap!

The world was forever changed when she went home to her Jesus. But I fully believe that a piece of her lives in each of us that she left behind. Together, we are making this world a sillier, crazier place. Rest in sweet peace, Grammy Ann!
