Yesterday was the one year anniversary of my grandmother's death. I had wanted to write something yesterday but just couldn't quite do it yet. She was very important in my life and man do I miss her. I have so many fond memories of her and thought of some yesterday to honor and remember her--like taking a walk in the woods behind her house and visiting the pet cemetery where some of the family pets were buried, spending the night at her house and her always cooking a good breakfast the next morning, her laugh, making a meringue for banana pudding, baking apples from her apple tree, taking a walk around the neighborhood and so many more. She was the strong center of our family and I feel so honored that she was my grandmother.
