Twenty-Three Years ...

Twenty-three years ago today, one of the most beautiful, loving, caring, brave and selfless women I have ever known, left this place to join her beloved Lord and Savior in Heaven.

My memories of my Granny are endless and can only be matched by my love for her, as well as the ache that took residency in my heart since the day she passed away. Easter Sunday - April, 15th, 1990.

I miss you every minute, of every hour, of every day.  I am in such awe when I think of the incredible strength you possessed in order to survive all of the hardships life forced you to endure. I am so thankful for the time we spent together. I cherish all of the memories that we made. And my heart sings with the knowledge that I will see you again one day.

Rest in Heavenly Peace, Granny.

I love you dearly.
I miss you always.
I carry you forever.


There is a silly little song I learned in camp when I was about 5 or 6 years old, and singing it brought such joy and laughter to my Granny. She would clap and dance, and giggle, as she sang with me. I can still see her doing this in my mind's eye.

This one's for you Granny!

Waddlie-aka, Waddlie-aka, Doodlie-do, Doodlie-do, 
Waddlie-aka, Waddlie-aka, Doodlie-do, Doodlie-do,
Just a little song, there isn't much to it, 
All you've got to do, is Doodlie-do it!
Waddlie-aka, Waddlie-aka, Doodlie-do, Doodlie-do
