If I went through the details of Grandma's life you could see lemon after lemon after lemon. Her life was stricken with so many tragedies it's almost unbelievable. What would have been even more unbelievable is if you would have met her. You would have thought her life was a reflection of the sunshine she constantly spread. She loved life and more importantly people more than anyone I've ever met.
As I try and think of her recipe for happiness it was really quite simple. She wanted to help people so that's what she did, maybe even to a fault. But she was so busy serving others that she didn't have time to worry about herself or what other people thought.
She sang as loud as she could even though she rarely was on key. When I close my eyes and think of her I see her jumping on our tramp at the age of 82 singing as loud as she could. She loved life and she wanted to help everyone else love life too.
Grandma, thank you for your love, thank you for your support, but most important, thank you for the frozen lemon water.
