  1. I just sighed. This is a wonderful story. I was aching that Nana was in the nursing home and not wearing pink and not having her hair done; hate when that happens to older loved ones. Your brother pointed me you way and I so happy to have read this and now feel like I was there; could be a great book or movie.

  2. What a wonderful tribute to your grandmother. She sounds like so much fun and a hoot. I hope my grands kids think of me this way someday. I did shed a few tears reading this…lovely.

  3. What a beautiful post! I wish my grandparents lived long enough for me to enjoy times like these with them. It’s warming to know how close the two of you were and how much life your Nana had in her.

    Thanks for sharing with us.

    Your writing gets better with each story. Loved the title and the birds eye view of such a lovely character! Just wish there was more of you in piece. Little to predictable.

  5. tears! what a beautiful story. Your nana sounds like a force of nature. we should all be so lucky to have a grandmother like that. My Grandmother was the center of my life and I was lucky to have her until 96, strong, fierce, independent until the end.

      Thanks so much, Rosemond. Yes, Nana was a force of nature. Its hard to know their influence till we get older and realize how much our grandparents shaped our lives. Thanks for reading.
